Chicago Railbird: the WEBN Stakes

This week, Chicago Railbird takes a (figurative) road trip to Turfway for the WEBN Stakes.  Though the race will be run in Kentucky, it has a Chicago-area connection.  The top two finishers from last year’s Arlington-Washington Futurity, Shogood and Van Damme, are among twelve runners (plus two also-eligibles) in the six and a half furlong polytrack sprint.

Wesley Ward wins a lot at Turfway, and his entrants invariably take wheelbarrows full of cash at the windows.  His filly Banree is the morning-line favourite, but with all of the other speed in the race, the “one to beat” looks wholly beatable.

There’s one horse I love to spring the upset.

So, head on over to ShapperDaCapper, read the latest Chicago Railbird, and let’s beat some chalk at Turfway!
