Willcox Inn Eyes Arlington Classic

Arlington Park.

All In Stable’s Willcox Inn, who broke his maiden at first asking at Arlington Park last September and defeated Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom in the process, worked five furlongs in 59.40 Saturday morning at Arlington under jockey James Graham and then galloped out three-quarters in 1:11.40.


The sophomore son of Harlan’s Holiday out of a Gone West mare recorded early splits of 24.40, 36.60, 48.40 and 59.40 in possible preparation for the upcoming $100,000 Arlington Classic on May 28.


Trained by Mike Stidham, Willcox Inn followed up his Chicago score with a third-place finish over Keeneland’s Polytrack in the Grade I Breeders Futurity in October, then recorded another third in the Churchill’s Grade II Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf in November over the Louisville lawn and finished second in Fair Grounds’ $60,000 Grindstone Stakes over a yielding grass course in New Orleans. In his last trip to the post Willcox Inn finished eighth in the Grade I Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland.
