Experiencing Arlington Million 2011 in person is something I'll never forget. As the day went by, the crowd grew by thousands. Early in the day, A beautiful blue sky with cotton like clouds greeted the fans who entered the track. But, as we got deeper into the race card, the skies opened up, and the...Read More

  • Winplacsho · I haven't been to all the top level tracks, but Arlington is at the top of my list for sure. I made it to the 2002 BC & the Arlington Millions won by Chester House & Marlin. I was there last summer too, but that polytrack turns me off. · 972 days ago ·
  • Eclipse First · Nice job, Scott--I am fortunate to have AP as my home track, and Million weekend is always a highlight --here's hoping Gov. Quinn signs the gambling bill to give us slots and also that the BC comes back again! · 972 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · Again I don't mind a disagreement especially when I can learn something from it, well remember what I already knew would be more appropriate. I never owned a thoroughbred but I did have many standardbreds starting with a $1,000 claimer in 1970. As the years went by I along with partners claimed, bought outright, and went to the yearling sales in search of that one really good horse that we never found. I mention this only because we exclusively followed the trail of Meadow Skipper and descendants and that's where my "crap shoot" statement comes from along with "genetics". A genuine captain Ahab I was chasing Moby Dick. Whenever genetics comes up I lose my perspective. Thanks for your input. · 976 days ago ·
  • tiznow · Stacelita impressed me by bounds, she was a single to me and proved she was much the best in there. However, watching the Sec again, I believe strongly Banned may have been the best horse in there. I can't wait to watch his next out. And even though Gio couldn't get it done, it was a great race and my first Million visit was astonishing to say the least. · 976 days ago ·
Treasure Beach ran down the pacesetting Ziyarid in the late stages to post a neck victory in the Grade I Secretariat Stakes at Arlington Park on August 13 Read More
  • medlocke · This colt has really and truly come into his own this season. His class told in Saturday's Secretariat Stakes. I don't think anyone would dispute that Banned and Wilcox Inn are 2 of the premier 3yr.old turf horses in America, and Treasure Beach handled both of them with a bit in hand. The other Euro horse representing the Aga Khan, Ziyarid, was really the only threat to Treasure Beach in the race. Treasure Beach is just another in long, long line of multiple graded and group stakes winning champion's sired year after year by the great Galileo. I.E. Treasure Beach, Cape Blanco, Frankel, Misty For Me, Seville, Rip Van Winkle, and Roderic O'Connor have all been sired by Galileo just over the past few seasons in Ireland. · 977 days ago ·
All was pretty much quiet on the western front Friday morning for the European invaders who have come to America for Saturday’s International Festival of Racing at Arlington Park.   Irish-bred Cape Blanco, owned by Mrs. Fitriani Hay, Derrick Smith, Mrs. John Magnier and Michael Tabor and mornin...Read More

  • Footlick · I might be leaning toward the Aga Khan colt. · 980 days ago ·
  • orangeman88 · Can't go wrong with the euros. How can anyone not choose the Irish Derby winner? Wouldn't the Secretariat be a class relief from that and the Epsom Derby? · 979 days ago ·
All In Stable’s Willcox Inn, who won the prestigious Arlington Classic May 28, the Grade II American Derby July 9 and is now in the position to become the fourth horse in history to sweep Arlington’s Mid-America Triple, heads a dozen sophomore grass stars pre-entered for the $400,000 Secretariat Sta...Read More
