Tajaaweed Looking at Arlington Million

Arlington Park.

Shadwell Stable’s Tajaaweed, third beaten a length and a half in last summer’s Grade III Arlington Handicap and then eliminated from contention in the Grade I Arlington Million after being held up in close quarters early, returned to competition by finishing second beaten three-quarters of a length in last Sunday’s $80,000 allowance optional claiming feature at Arlington in his first start of 2011.

 

“We were pleased with his race the other day,” said Tajaaweed’s trainer Danny Peitz Wednesday morning.  “He did everything but win.  Obviously, we would have been happier if he had won it, but all in all we were happy with his effort.

 

“We gave Tajaaweed the whole winter off,” said Peitz.  “After Arlington last summer we ran him in a couple of races at Keeneland (including a fourth-place finish in the Grade III Sycamore Stakes), but after a little time on the farm in Lexington we sent him back to (Shadwell’s Camden, South Carolina) farm where he had spent the previous winter.

 

“He looks like he’s come back a little bigger and a little stronger this year, and for now I would think the whole idea is to try to earn another free ride to the Million,” Peitz said. “We’ll look around for another race for him in a few weeks and if that goes well we’ll probably take a look at the Arlington Handicap (July 9) once again.”
