We are T minus one week until the Million, but there is no summertime rest for followers of horse racing. This weekend at Picks and Ponderings, Paul Mazur and I split our attention between Arlington and Saratoga.
On the homefront, we take a look at the pair of turf route stakes on the Arlington card. I tackle the Black Tie Affair; Paul looks at the Mike Spellman Memorial.
At Saratoga, we preview all five stakes on the Whitney Day card. I turn my eyes toward the Test (GI) and the Waya (GIII); Paul handicaps the Whitney (GI), the De La Rose, and the Lure.
