Arlington: Robusto pretty super

Email

Well, turned out to be Super Robusto favored, Shrewd Operator second choice after all in race 6. No idea what that early Big Looie money was all about: He wound up last. Shrewd Operator also ran quite poorly; he pressed a hot early pace, but the leader, Mighty Rule, stayed on for third. Super Robusto, meanwhile, came from second-last with a nice run between horses, holding clear Arlington-loving King A., who had rallied from last. Super Robusto now 2-2 since moving to Polytrack and Wayne Catalano, and should be bound for a stakes next out.

How bout tote board 10 minutes to race 7? 5-1, 5-1, 6-1, 8-1, 4-1, 9-2, 5-1, 5-1. Betting public thoroughly mystified by 3yo turf race.
