Saturday afternoon at Arlington featured a pair of graded stakes races, the Arlington Matron (GIII) and the Arlington Classic (GIII).
One featured sophomores, one older. One went on the grass, the other on the main. In one, a favourite obliged; in the other, not so much. But, both had the most enjoyable thing in common: a tight, contentious ending.
Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my recap of the Arlington Matron and the Arlingon Classic, and relive a pair of thrilling photo finishes!
