Furlong Friday at Arlington

On this Friday we take a look at a nice six furlong contest on the poly.

Arlington International Race 4 {6 furlongs~3 year old Up~Claiming}
A veteran group of eight will go to the gate in this sprint contest.  There is enough speed to create a swift pace. The speed figs are relatively close which should lead to a battle for position.  It should be a good race.

#7 Big Reward (Emigh / Bennett) is coming into this one off a short layoff enabling him to start fresh. Among this group he holds the highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and four robust peaking workouts.  He has the tactical speed to sit right off the pace and dash into the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

#4 Prince of Madness (Homeister / Mason) should challenge with the second highest last out speed number and a two race progression. He holds the best record over the Arlington polytrack with an 83% in the money record.  This lad should also be close to the pace ready to pounce.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#6 Daddyspentdamoney (Edu. Perez / Dini) should be in the mix with a decent last out speed number at a route and the highest speed number over the Arlington poly. He should be tracking the pace ready to rumble.

#1 Truebill (Graham / Dorris) should contend with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and one solid workout.  He should also be tracking the pace positioning fro a strong stretch run.

10 CENT Superfecta
