Real Solution Training Great for Million

Defending Grade I Arlington Million champion Real Solution has settled in well since arriving Tuesday for this year’s edition.  The Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey-owned homebred son of  Kitten’s Joy has looked impressive for two consecutive mornings as he puts the finishing touches on his preparation for Saturday’s event.

“He’s training really well and doing great,” said Osvaldo Hernandez, assistant trainer to Chad Brown.  “He seems the same as last year and is feeling really good.  When (Brown) gets here, we’ll decide how he finishes his (preparation).”

An earner of nearly $1.4 million and five of 13 career starts, Real Solution has won only one of five since his adjudged victory in 2013.  His best performance, though, came last out when taking the Grade I Manhattan Stakes at Belmont Park on June 7 by a widening 1¼ lengths – the same race in which he finished third before last year’s Million.  After the Million, he is expected to be aimed at the Grade I Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at Belmont before a career finale in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Turf.
