Arlington: Turf not all that soft

EmailKnow the winner of the American 1000 Guineas went a mile in a tepid 1:39 and change, but just had multiple jocks tell me the course was more good-to-yielding than the 'soft' it's being called by Arlington. In any case, Bay to Bay got over it nicely, winning basically as jock Albarado pleased. Favored Queen of the Creek never looked comfortable.
