Hi all!

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.


The JayCee Upset Special:  Hardest Core


Well folks!  Million time already!  Hope your summer is going well, mine is!  At any rate, thank you so much for stopping!  Hurry it back next week!  And good luck!

Or he must be running on turf where the race shape is usually slow/slow/slow/fast/fast/ for this distance, as it was here.
I see you are bloviating again on Laura, travel_vic. Your combination 1st thing that came to mind / Don’t think, Blink / Occam’s Razor??? response of orange didn’t pay off this time and it appears you’ve driven vodkak astray/to drink. The correct answer is RIDERS.
Again, nice Upset Special HayCee >> Final answers in?
Not trying to taint the tally, BUT… 1 vote for horses, good one vodkak. Wonder what t_v does today when the heavies he’s amongst ask to take a peek at how his HRN ‘seminar’ is going :D
My guess it's the horses looking at one another. After all the riders are merely passengers and they are busy checking out all the hotties in the stands.
Orange is incorrect. Are these questions too CRYPTIC for you?
Is it the HORSES or the RIDERS that look at one another? Where’s the invisible pace rabbit?
Right icy many of these international contests degrade to European paces of race:LOOK at one another all the way to the mile marker and then run like the dickens there on.
He did exactly what he did last out but a 1/4 mile shorter and a bit faster. This horse consistently runs :23 and change final 1/4s at 10-12f.
Nice call, Hardest Core ran every quarter faster than the previous one... must be Secretariat :D The pace of the St Leger was faster for nearly a mile.

AWESOME PLAY and posted **2 DAYS AGO**!
Since other than this comment I haven't got a clue on how to actually respond to a comment on what used to be pulse, I'll use this. Recently gelded horses are always worth a second look. I put him with the two favorites in the ex and tri. Real Solution running last is a puzzle. Looked good on paper, great on the track and fizzles???????
1-3 $2exacta, $101.60. 1-3-7-5 order of finish.
I'll take a crack at it with Side Glance. Real Solution, Up With the Birds,Smoking Sun.
