What the Nation is saying about General Election...

Wow had no place to go!! Poor horse, would have mowed them down if he had room. Just gave up when he couldn't find any. Watch it and tell me what you think!!
Hill ‘N Dale Farm’s General Election, best by a neck in Churchill’s Grade III Jefferson Cup at last asking Sept. 28 and hero of Chicago’s Grade III Arlington Classic last spring, may rule the choice when he faces eight rivals in Saturday’s $75,000 Woodchopper Stakes at about one mile over the Stall-...Read More

We have a big weekend coming up at Arlington Park, but I would first like to thank those who have been awaiting a new HHH article for putting up with my 31-60 day layoff. Perhaps I will have a good record after the hiatus, much like Dark Cove's trainer Mike Maker (26%), ideally with a better ROI. Read More

  • virgil thatcher · The turf races at AP never disappoint me-should be a great day at the track. I too will be between the paddock and rail most of the day. Definitely buy a voucher first then use the terminals down by the paddock, that area's a ghost town when 2MTP comes around and its great for last-minute wagers... · 279 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · I found that the first few seasons Arlington was all over the place. Track maintenance tells me that is typical until a polytrack course matures and settles in. the course MOST like an early dirt cours STILL is Woodbine as it has for a long time now. AND they have the best truf course in North America bar none · 278 days ago ·

Trained b...Read More
I had the pleasure of my first visit of the year to Arlington Park yesterday, and I picked an excellent day to attend. If you’ve never been to the suburban track just a short drive northwest of Chicago, I can only ask why not, as there is not a finer facility in American racing, and when the quality...Read More

  • buds · does this give Pletcher 6 in the derby? He better win if he is traing a third of the field. 3 could block on the right and 2 block on the left and send Verranzano down the middle! · 362 days ago ·
  • UnionRagsRules · Yeah right. They could try all they want but REVOLUTIONARY and Bo-rail will find a way out. They will be gunning for it, as is every other horse. · 361 days ago ·
