A Stakes Saturday Million

Off we go to the beautiful Turf of Arlington International. Today is the 34th running of the Arlington Million and promises to be the best race of this Stakes Saturday.

Arlington International Racecourse Race 9 {Arlington Million~G1~1 1/4 mile~TURF~3 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}

A bountiful field of twelve will take to the Arlington green in this annual race. There is enough speed and forwardly placed types to maintain an honest pace. Speed numbers are very, very close making it anyone's race to win. It arguably is the best race of the summer Turf season.

#9 Mondaliste [IRE] (Tudhope / O'Meara) might get a tremendous trip to secure the victory. He has raced really well across the pond in Great Britain showing a 70% overall in the money record. He will be coming down in distance for this race. A millionaire son of Galileo [IRE], he should set in for a nice tracking effort.
$2 WIN  /  $3 PLACE  /  $4 SHOW.

#12 Tryster [IRE] (Buick / Appleby) could go off as the favorite with a 78% overall in the money record racing in Great Britain and elsewhere overseas. He did put in a good workout over the Arlington polytrack. This son of Sharmadal should get a good set-up for his supreme closing kick.
$2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#13 Deauville [IRE] (Heffernan / O'Brien) should contend having already captured a win at this distance racing at Belmont as well as having an overall in the money record of 72%. This lad has the tactical speed to stay close and launch a smooth quickening going into the stretch. Another son of Galileo [IRE], he has run a peaking workout at Arlington leading up to this race.
$2 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#10 Wake Forest [GER] (Prat / C. Brown) should also be in serious contention with a couple of excellent last out performances, a two race progression, and four superb workouts. This guy is another with a high percentage (71%) in the money record. A son of Sir Percy [GB], he will be closing gallantly into an honest pace.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)
