Friday Turf at Arlington Park

Friday of the Memorial Day weekend we go to the Turf in Sweet Home Chicago.
Praise to those who have served and paid the ultimate price.

Arlington Park Race 5 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Claiming}
A fine group of seven will take to the beautiful Arlington Turf.  There are a few in here that are not above being forwardly placed in a Turf route.  Most have demonstrated tactical speed in their careers.  It should be a fine race filled with "strateegery".

#3 Doctor Trotter (Esquivel / Domenosky) has all the assets to pull off the victory.  He holds a couple of good last out speed numbers, and has put in three endurance building workouts.  This lad is 85% in the money at the distance.
$2 SHOW.

#7 Azure Dragon (Graham / Dini) should challenge with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and the third highest speed number at the distance.  He is 50% in the money at this distance.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Rio Chama (San Jur / Manley) could be in the mix with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two solid peaking workouts.  He has the tactical speed to stay with the pace and shoot through the stretch.

#6 Shoot the Loop (Thornton / Goldfine) is coming off a brief freshening working a two race progression, and putting in three robust peaking workouts.  This guy holds the highest speed number at the distance as well as a 66% in the money record.
