Regally Ready Headlines Saturday's 100k Arlington Sprint

The Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint champions from the last two seasons lead a field of six in Saturday's Arlington Sprint Handicap.

Headlining the event are the 2011 champion, Regally Ready, and the 2010 champion Chamberlain Bridge. Chamberlain Bridge has also won the Arlington Sprint back in 2010 as well.

 

The Arlington Sprint started as a new race back in 1990 where it was run on the dirt at 7 furlongs. After a brief hiatus it returned in 1996 and has been run ever since (sans 1998-1999). The race was run at 6 furlongs on the dirt from 1996 to 2007 and switched to the turf course at 5 1/2 furlongs in 2008. Last year's winner Havelock shined this year in the Hanshin Cup earlier this summer. 

 

Below is my video preview of the field for what should be a very exciting and competitive race.

 (Whoa - it's me - the DARK HORSE)
 
Greetings and welcome to my "dark" blog!  I have been a fan of horse racing since I was about 12 years old.  Growing up in Minnesota, my dad would take me and my brothers to Canterbury Downs and I would practically beg to go every weekend!!  I made my first "big" score there hitting the win, place, and exacta in the same race at age 14 (pulled in $84 with horses named Railroad Red and Racers Dream!).  I even had a poster in my bedroom of Lost Code winning the 1987 St. Paul Derby!
 
While finishing school in Chicago, I spent every possible moment at Arlington Park with my dad.  We took the time to develop computer programs (on the ever popular Lotus 1-2-3 for DOS) to try to find patterns and handicap races more accurately.  My dad taught me a lot about handicapping races, paying particular attention to class moves!

Since then, I have become more involved with horse racing each passing year through a variety of different media-based roles. Once deemed the "second best racing ambassador in Chicago" (hey I've been called worse), 
I now reside in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the USA and will be covering many different aspects of racing - in my unpredictable DARK HORSE STYLE!  
 
My favorite tracks are:
Arlington
Canterbury
Del Mar
Hawthorne
Keeneland
Kentucky Downs

 
Some of my all-time favorite horses include:
