Arlington: Off the turf. Outside paths preferred?


It's hot and humid, though nothing like the big heat wave of a few days ago. Mid-80s. Southwest wind, 4-10 mph.
Off turf today, and one even wonders if turf will be used when racing resumes Thursday, given the many inches that fell Friday and Saturday, with more precipitation this morning.
Not saying the Poly is biased, but the rail doesn't seem especially good. Even front-running winner Capt. Bullet Bob in race 2 was kept a few paths off the fence while in the clear.
Capt. Bullet Bob one of two winners on the day for trainer Wayne Catalano, the other being first-time-starting 2yo Awesome Gisel in race 4.
