Arlington: Sunday conditions


Still cool and breezy, but wind from s'west (12-18 mph - head/cross wind in stretch) not n'west, and not as strong as yesterday afternoon.
Sunny, 70 degrees, 41-percent humidity
Turf good, rail in lane 3

24.47, 49.30, and final one-turn-mile Poly time of 1:38.90 for pace-pressing, second-choice winner Step Sister in the opener, a $10K f & m claimer. Speed and fade from rail for class-dropping bet-down chalk Nala's Pride.

Significant scratch later in the day, with Major Gain, part of a Wayne Catalano-trained entry, out of race 7, a 2yo MSW. Media Contact, the other Catalano, still goes.
