What the Nation is saying about the 2011 Arlington Handicap (G3)...

There were times during his career when I thought Tajaaweed might be more, but I’ve come to the realization that he simply will not come out victorious against the best … not that there’s anything wrong with that. The world needs solid grade three horses, and Tajaaweed is a very good one. Read More
Yes, I know Banned has looked great in winning his last two races at Churchill Downs, but anyone at Arlington Park this afternoon for Million Preview Day, has to have a similar thought as me right now … Willcox Inn is in the running to stake claim as the finest sophomore turf horse in the land.
