Superfecta Sunday at Arlington Park

Ain't it good to be back home again?  We journey to magnificent Arlington Park where there are always thrilling TURF battles.  On this Superfecta Sunday we take a close look at a very nice TURF allowance for Illinois gals.  With an average size field we will try to tap a 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

Arlington Park Race 7 {1 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~IL~Allowance}
A really nice field of eight talented fillies/mares will go onto the green for this Turf feature.  The speed is coming off an extended layoff.  The majority of the field will stay close to her as they fly over the beautiful Arlington Park turf.  A few tracker/closers will round out the field.  An interesting race with any of these gals capable of hitting the wire first.

#5 Leading Astray (EE Perez / Block) looks like she has the edge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two wonderful, peaking workouts.  She should stay close to the leader ready to strike in the stretch.

#1 No Retreat (J. Sanchez / Block) should be able to take advantage of a heated pace.  She holds the second highest last out speed number off a longer route, is rolling through a two race progression, and has put in two athletic workouts.  She could close swiftly giving chase to her teammate a challenge.

#8 Viva Bertha (Torres / Kirby) could surprise with the fourth highest (3-way tie) last out speed number covering a longer route, a five race progression, and three superb peaking workouts.  This daughter of Military should be able to track and close with percision.  She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$5 SHOW.

#3 Gutierez Girl (Martinez / Bruggemann) is coming off an extended layoff, but you have to respect her connections.  Prior to the layoff her last off puts her with the fourth highest speed number and she was working a three race progression.  She has put in a couple of stamina producing works in the last thirty days.  She should be the speed of the field and could on to victory taking the field through controlled fractions.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#5 Leading Astray  +  #1 No Retreat  +  #8 Viva Bertha  +  #3 Gutierez Girl.
