Arlington Million: Tajaaweed Works

Arlington Million: Tajaaweed Works

Shadwell Stable’s Tajaaweed, third in the Grade III Arlington Handicap July 17 as the final local designed prep for the Grade I Arlington Million Aug. 21, breezed a half-mile in 46.80 Saturday morning in advance of that upcoming showcase race of the Arlington season.

 

Also contested on Arlington Million Day will be the Grade I Beverly D., the Million’s sister race restricted fillies and mares, and the Grade I Secretariat Stakes restricted to 3-year-olds.   Together, they comprise the only three Grade I races offered in Illinois on an annual basis.

 

 

‘WORKIN,’ ‘MISTER MARTI’ WORK TOWARD SECRETARIAT STAKES

 

Estrorace LLC’s Workin for Hops, who won the 75th renewal of the $100,000 Arlington Classic May 22 and the 96th running of the Grade II American Derby July 17, breezed four furlongs in 48 flat Saturday morning in preparation for the Grade I Secretariat Stakes as part of Arlington’s one-day International Festival of Racing three weeks from now on Aug. 21.

 

Should Workin for Hops win the Secretariat Stakes, restricted to 3-year-olds and run at 10 furlongs over Arlington’s world-famous turf course, the entire son of City Zip would become the first horse to sweep Arlington’s Mid-America Triple since Robert Schaedle’s Honor Glide accomplished the feat in 1997.

 

Also on the work tab Saturday morning in preparation for the Secretariat Stakes was Lothenbach Stables’ Mister Marti Gras, runner-up to Workin for Hops in the American Derby.  That altered son of Belong to Me got the half-mile distance in 49.60.
