Older Comments about the 2011 Arc Trial (G3)...

I've never really been certain why this race is called the Arc Trial? Because rarely ever do the horses that run in this race go on to run in the Arc as well. Dangerous Midge won this race in 2010, and used it a prep and his springboard to come to Churchill Downs and win the BC Turf. Trainer Brian Meehan said yesterday that's exactly what he intends to try and do again this year with Dangerous Midge. Win the Arc Trial, then return to Churchill Downs for the BC Turf. Although Dangerous Midge does also hold an entry into the Melbourne Cup in Australia on the very same day as the BC Turf. Just in case Brian Meehan's plan doesn't go exactly as planned?
