Early bird sign-up (where you can save 10% on the cost) for full card selections for a magnificent day of racing at Arlington Park on Arlington Million day, August 17th will begin next week.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

1  Rockabye Lady   mom's a good producer but nobody won at 2 years of age so Baffert and the connections bring this filly out at 3 and the works suggest they are not messing around in her MSW debut

4  Burns Turn   versatile athletic Sadler filly has fired on turf, dirt, and pace runner should be motoring late

3  Sealington   Leonard Powell (good meet to date with limited starters) 1ster has hit the track to work every 7 days for the last 3 months..........should be very fit for her MSW debut


race 2    slightly below average clarity

4  Awe' Some Kitten   believe Peter Miller made a discovery of sorts about this filly because she sure is working markedly better since her last..........and she owns some significant back numbers at Hollywood on the AW

6  Bottle Blonde   on the improve at GG......1st time out for Greenman and he convinces Bejarano to accept the mount.......seemingly sharp filly sure looks as though she will appreciate the extra 1/2 furlong of racing today

1  Lady Katfish   very consistent sort since the blinkers were added 6 races back........seems likely to get a close to the front ground saving trip from the app Orozco who is not afraid to ride inside

5  Sallyana


race 3    average clarity

2  Need To Know    big race in GB beating the boys at 33 to 1 three races back.........not so hot in her two races in the good old U S of A......but......blinkers off..........and assuming the strong recent works are with them off....... then.......we likely will see a vastly improved race today from this filly

6  Judy In Diguise   lone route grass race which was run at CD at 1 1/16th is decent and better than appears in print........1/16th less to run today and the mile distance seems like a better fit.........Stevens is 1 for 1 for the trainer

1  Wednesday   2 for 2 when today's jock is aboard......0 for 5 with other riders up.........recent work regiment hints at a possibility of best ever this afternoon


race 4    average clarity

1  Catatonic Cat   trainer is quite good 3rd out after layoffs and that is the scenario here.......and this gelding might have plenty left in the tank for today coming off of an effort where he was blocked on the turn and the stretch

5  Dark Timbers   solid forward move in last and a very quick bullet 3F drill since........might be sitting on lifetime best this afternoon

7  Blazing Lute   Hector Palma isn't so hot with 1st time starters and quite good with 2nd time starters.....and this fellow's 1st start wasn't too bad

4  Mr. Fitzramathorn


race 5    average clarity

4  Elegant    seemingly runs best on the Hollywood grass course and it showed in her nice win in does not bother me that O'Neill drops a notch here as this should be her last race on the Hol grass till mid Fall

7  Tanquerray    very good history in 1 mile grass affairs (4 2 1 0).......Quinonez is not my favorite rider of grass horses but he rides this one well........won his last 1 mile grass race (2 back) despite being washy

5  Smart Striking    not much in latest......strong effort 2 back......needs a rebound.........tough call if we get one or not

1  Prettypriceygirl


race 6    average clarity

1  Ralphy Girl   solid winning move forward with the addition of blinkers in latest.......3 reassuring works since......set a fast 1/4 in last to wire.......repeat of that 1/4 should put her on the lead once again with one of California's top speed jocks up

8  Decoy    GG invader has hit the board in all six lifetime main track races.......and he sure is well spotted to win (as opposed to too ambitiously spotted as so many invaders are)......Jedd Josephson is 1 for 1 at the meet

3  Glorious Memories   nice move forward in 2nd lifetime start.......nice move forward 2nd out after a layoff in more seems likely today 2nd out after the 7 week layoff.......and the barn is hot hot hot

9  Abella


race 7    average clarity

2  Biorhythm   1st on the sod but adequate pedigree for it......significant strong race 2 back at Kee on the AW......trainer has woken up from the doldrums.......Stevens is up and he "picks his spots"

Llandudno    toss out 1st ever turf route in last as this Sadler runner was way too wide.......two previous lifetime races were both solid sprint turf races.......good recent work tab suggests a 3rd competitive sprint grass race will occur this afternoon

5  Madre Luna   solid turf sprints in 2 of last 3.......and recent impressive a.m. work suggest this Canani runner is feeling gooooood

7  Nospeightintended


race 8    average clarity

6  Rock Me Baby    best early speed in this affair and this gelding seems like a ratable sort.......combine that with a solid speed rider in Maldonado and this fellow might be very difficult to get by

4  Half Strike   on the improve with every start in 2013 and his last endeavor is somewhat hidden by a wide trip......very formidable if the the trend continues today

2  Golden Itiz   major awakening in last seemingly out of nowhere (at least to yours truly).......repeat of the effort might make him the one to beat here......but historically he hasn't been very good at repeating back to back solid runs.......toss a coin

1  You Know I Know


race 9    average clarity

8  Sunny Kat   beautifully bred to appreciate racing on the sod......and this Sadler 1st timer appears to have been pointed to be ready for his MSW debut as there are not many opportunities for a maiden two year old on the grass early on

1  Forever Juanito   plenty of a.m. work for this 1st timer of Victor Garcia's and his last drill (48 Hg 2/35) hints he has never felt better

7  Settheworldonfire   another with very good grass breeding and his work regiment is very aggressive for someone like Abrams who doesn't push his 1st timers too hard in the mornings usually

5  Taelyns Prince

4  Geldautomat

10  Celtic Moon
