Block's barn heating up at Arlington


ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – For the second consecutive Arlington season, trainer Chris Block started slowly, but unlike in 2013, when his stable didn’t heat up until mid-July and never truly fired on all cylinders, Block began rolling a couple of weeks ago. One might suggest that My Option’s sharp win Saturday in the Chicago Handicap was the culmination of that trend, but Block hopes there’s more to come.
