"Arlington is KILLER," said Eclipse Sportswire's Scott Serio of this week's photo gallery, and we have to agree!
The picturesque track in Arlington Heights, Illinois is the lush backdrop to the Arlington Million heroics of Little Mike, the first US-based horse to win the Million since 2009. Eclipse photographers pulled out all the stops in capturing Little Mike's win, as well as the thrilling stretch drive in the Beverly D that saw I'm A Dreamer and jockey Hayley Turner score a narrow nose victory over Marketing Mix.
Not to be outdone, Saratoga hosted the most impressive performance by any three-year-old this year: Questing demolished the field in the Alabama in a wire-to-wire win that left jaws hanging!
At Del Mar, Lady of Shamrock gave Mike Smith a Zenyatta-like run from last-to-first in the Del Mar Oaks.
All of these graded stakes winners and more are in this week's photo album!
