Superfecta Sunday, Sweet Home Chicago

On this last Superfecta Sunday of the month we visit a wonderful Turf race at beautiful Arlington International.

Arlington Park Race 6 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year olds up~fillies/mares~Maiden Special Weight}
A large field of twelve will go to the grass seeking their first win.  This is a highly competitive group and as maiden contests go, any gal in this field could be victorious.  Little speed shows up on the radar in this one, only a couple of forwardly placed types. Although its a question mark whether the shrewd trainer, Wayne Catalano, will be sending his first time starter, #9 Princess Alluvial.  It will be quite a challenge for any handicapper to do as we must, fashion together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#3 Ready for Summer (Geroux / Block) might have the edge with the highest last out speed number and one bullet workout.  She has already secured the money in her two starts, now she seeks a win. This gal should be tracking the pace closely. She will be our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#1 Blue Jean Baby (Marquez / Williamson) has already won once.  Why is she in a maiden race?  Because she was DQ'd to third for drifting badly in the stretch.  She seeks to make amends here with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two hearty workouts.  This lady is the only one to have run this distance.  Her coupled entrant #1A So Good to Go (E. Perez / Williamson) is no slouch either with a couple of decent last out speed numbers including the last out at a longer route and one solid workout.  Both these gals like to come from off the pace.

#4 Divided Humor (Graham / R. Scherer) seeks her first victory from this sixth start.  She holds the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and one stout workout.  She is another that will be closing swiftly.  One of the few in here that have traveled the Arlington Turf with aplomb.

#10 Kitty's Castle (Esquivel / Janks) should be in the hunt in her first Turf start with the second highest (tie) last out speed number and two wholesome workouts.  She is one of the demonstrated forwardly placed types that may want to control the pace and burst into the stretch.  This will be her third career start, expect some more improvement.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#3 Ready for Summer  +  #1 Blue Jean Baby (#1A So Good to Go)  +  #4 Divided Humor  +  #10 Kitty's Castle.
