Hersh: Arlington-Washington Futurity analysis


The “best” horse in a race: What does that mean exactly? PRIVATE PROSPECT is the “best” horse in the Grade 3, $125,000 Arlington-Washington Futurity in the sense that he’s 3 for 3 with two stakes wins, and no other horse in the race has more than a maiden win to his credit. But is Private Prospect the best horse in the local Futurity in the sense of being the most likely winner? I have doubts about that. I’m not approaching the race that way.
