Tajaaweed Back for Another Arlington 'Cap

Arlington Park.

Shadwell Stable’s Tajaaweed, third in the Grade III Arlington Handicap last year and sixth in the Grade I Arlington Million, worked five furlongs over the Polytrack in 1:00.60 Sunday morning in advance of the 2011 Arlington Handicap over the local lawn on Saturday.

 

“He worked good and he galloped out good,” said trainer Danny Peitz later on Sunday.  “I got him galloping out in (1:13.20).  He’s coming into Saturday’s race good – just like he did last year.  The only difference I want to happen is to make sure we win it this time.”

 

Designed as the final local prep for the Arlington Million in recent years, Saturday’s Arlington Handicap will be run as part of a three-stakes program over Arlington’s world famous turf course that is billed as Million Preview Day.  Saturday’s Grade III Modesty Handicap and Grade II American Derby will serve as the local tune-ups for the Grade I Beverly D. and Grade I Secretariat Stakes respectively.

 

The Arlington Million, $750,000 Beverly D. and $400,000 Secretariat will be run as part of Arlington’s International Festival of Racing on Aug. 13.

 

Others likely for the Arlington Handicap at this time are:  G. Watts Humphrey Jr.’s El Crespo, fourth-place runner in Churchill’s Grade III Louisville Handicap May 28 and an entire son of A. P. Indy who breezed a half on the Polytrack at Keeneland Sunday in 50.40; Lothenbach Stables’ Mister Marti Gras, who breezed five furlongs in 1:01 flat at Churchill on the Fourth of July after being a late scratch out of that track’s Grade III Firecracker Handicap on that day; Jose Carillo and Fernando Fantini’s Argentine-bred Interaction, winner of that nation’s Group I Carlos Pellegrini in 2009; and Stiftung Gestut Fahrhof’s German-bred Sanagas, from the same connections as 2001 Arlington Million winner Silvano.

 

The list of Arlington Handicap probable starters as of Monday morning was completed by Keith Chudzik’s Amun Re, Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s Dean’s Kitten, Betty and Robert Irvin’s Juniper Pass, and William Stiritz’s Proceed Bee.
