Today was one of my favourite days of the Arlington racing season: the day of the Arlington-Washington Futurity (GIII) and Arlington-Washington Lassie (Listed)! It’s the only day of stakes racing for juveniles in the Arlington season, and hopes run high that maybe we will see a few horses who will make a mark later in the season, or even as they age.
Today’s stakes featured two very different kinds of finishes: the Lassie was a romp, and the Futurity needed a photo. There was something for everyone.
See who won and see what the connections had to say at Picks and Ponderings!
