Arlington: A third of a Saturday


Belated Saturday conditions:

57 degrees, 56 percent humidity
East wind (tail-wind stretch) 6-12 mph
Turf yielding, with rail in lane 4

Bunches of scratches, which seems strange on the meet's penultimate program. Scratches include Party of Eight out of upcoming race 4, she of the eight wins in 2010. Monkey's Moonbeam the 4-5 chalk in POE's absence.

Class-dropping Ember's Glowing just surged to win in race 3 under nice ride from Julio Felix. Mr. Felix, a veteran, has been something of a revelation here this summer. A very solid meeting.

Even-money Khurkuri had no trouble with the wet going, leading from start to finish in the opener.
