Arlington: Winning Dorochenko first-timer had no works showing


There were no works showing in DRF or in the track program for first-time starting 2-year-old Fairy Cat in race 2, a $25K maiden-claimer. Fairy Cat, a Tale of the Cat colt trained by Gennadi Dorochenko, won easily at odds of 10-1. Three late works -- two slow 3fs and a 2fs -- were made announced over the public address system, but this hardly is adequate, is it? I mean, bettors could assume there was some kind of work activity if the horse was allowed to race, but the idea is to communicate the information in a timely fashion.
