Arlington: Off turf on wet, cool Saturday


Really heavy rain came about 10 this morning, and that was that for turf racing today, and perhaps tomorrow, as well. Lots of scratches on what was already a ho-hum card. It's about 70 degrees, east wind (tail in stretch) 4-8 mph.

Starting the day with three permutations of conditioned $7,500 claimers, something I can't recall seeing before at any venue.
