In today’s Chicago Railbird, I take a deep dive into the Arlington 8th. It is not the usual weekday fare at Arlington: instead, it is a classy grass affair for fillies and mares, featuring stakes level horses. With the rain looking like it will hold off the race ought to remain on the grass. The trainers are familiar, the jockeys are familiar…some of the horses are usual suspects on the circuit, while others have not raced on the Arlington grass quite so much. It’s a race that deserves a deep dive.
