Arlington: Turf still called firm after downpour

Email

Race 7, won by 11-1 She's Got to Run, was contested in a driving downpour that lasted about six minutes, but the turf is still being called firm. Call me skeptical. We've had a very wet spring, and this grass already had some give to it before the rain. Race 10, a $5K starter sprint, is the day's only grass race.
