Arlington: Winchester heavy favorite in synthetic-track debut


Seven minutes to post for the Stars and Stripes Stakes, and Winchester, making his all-weather track debut in his 22nd start, is the 7-5 favorite. That price would've been shorter if this race had stayed onto turf, but it's still too short for me given the switch to the main track and this being Winchester's first start of 2011. Unfortunately, my selection, Proceed Bee, did not look especially good in the post parade.
