Tune Up before the MILLION

It is the Friday before MILLION day.

The Arlington Million will be run, tomorrow, Saturday (8/16). Looking at the undercard it will be a phenomenal day of handicapping, wagering, and racing.

Today we make a little tune-up by examining a nice Turf mile.

Arlington International Race 3 {1 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Allowance}
A good line-up of seven will go to the grass in this early afternoon feature. There is a great deal of speed and forwardly placed types that could create a barn burner of a race. These gals are closely aligned in their speed numbers.  It could be an unpredictable race.

#3 Royal Alluvial (Baird / Catalano) could run off with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two robust workouts. She should be part of the front running pack ready to breakaway going into the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

#1 Paschendale (Homeister / Domenosky) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number at a longer route. She holds a good in the money record of 63% over the surface from eleven starts. This gal will also be part of the front running pack.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#7 Suspended Moon (Thornton / Reavis) should be in the hunt with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and one endurance producing workout.  She holds the second highest (tie) speed number at the distance. This gal will be closing swiftly.

#5 Dani Nikki (Sanjur / Poulos) will be in the mix with the second highest last out speed number at a longer route and a two race progression.  She has the tactical speed to allow the race to develop and take every advantage of it.

10 CENT Superfecta
