Welcome back to another edition of Horse Racing Preview! This week's feature comes to us from Arlington Park and that can only mean one thing! It's time for Arlington Million XXXII!
This is Race 10 from Arlington, set for of course a mile and a quarter on the turf, is restricted to 3-year-olds and up, and carries a purse of one million dollars!
Let's take a look at the field:
Hardest Core (KY) 20/1
Smoking Sun (KY) 9/2
Magician (IRE) 7/5
Finnegans Wake (KY) 12/1
Up With the Birds (ON) 6/1
Real Solution (PA) 5/2
Side Glance (GB) 8/1
Hardest Core looks like your champion to me! He won his last race, the Cape Henlopen at Delaware last month by 3, and this race was a mile and a half! He started in second then when he was sent (to the lead) he kept it! Same story for his last couple races, but I am most intrigued by his third-from-last start, where he came from 7 down to win at Belmont! And he's done well at a handful of tracks, so wrap it up, I'm sold!
Nextie! Smoking Sun seems to be a stalker-type. (Kinda hard to tell, but based on what the notes say...) Anyway, his last few races he's finished well, and he's been in stakes galore, so he should be well-ready for this one!
Lastie! Real Solution stalked from 5 down to win his last start at Belmont, the Manhattan, and before that he came from 6 down to run second in the Man O' War. He has a lot of good races under his belt, and this one looks to be yet another! Javier Castellano rides again for trainer Chad Brown.
