Furlong Friday at Arlington International

Thank goodness it's Furlong Friday. Today we take a look at a nice Turf sprint.

Arlington International Race 2 {5 Furlongs~TURF~3 year-old Up~Maiden Claiming}

A decent group of nine will run on the green in this Turf sprint. There is enough speed to guarantee a strong pace. Speed numbers are fairly close with a couple of high speed outliers. It should be an exciting race as the Arlington International meet nears its close.

#6 Mean Intentions (Valdivia / Rivelli) has the edge with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one bullet workout. This lad has a 50% in the money record from four starts. He should be close to the pace and appears ready to break his maiden.
$2 WIN.

#7 Kennedy's Cadet (Lermyte / Block) should challenge with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and one solid workout. He is coming out of route, but this may be his preferred distance showing the third highest speed number at it. This guy should track the pace closely and strike in the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

#8 Richieswilddream (Baird / Rivelli) can be expected to launch into the front with the third highest (tie) last out speed number at a route, a two race progression, and one peaking workout. This lad is one of three to hit the board at Arlington. Superb connections should bring this boy home again.

#1 Running on Ethel (T. Thornton / Mitchell) will be making the switch from the polytrack to the Turf which should be a fairly smooth transition. He has finished in the money in his last two earning modest speed numbers. This guy is dropping in distance with a bullet peaking workout. From eight starts he is 50% in the money.

10 CENT Superfecta
