Arlington: Turf, unsurprisingly, plays slow


Summer Savory gave trainer Mike Stidham his first win of the Arlington meet, parlaying a perfect pressing trip under James Graham to victory in race 6, an N1X turf-route allowance. Winning time for the one mile was a pokey 1:41.66, but the rail is out in lane 4, and much rain the last few days has turned the grass 'yielding.' Runner-up Trac N Jam ran pretty well in defeat, while fourth-place Isteefaa was locked inside much of the stretch run and could do better next time.
