Chicago Railbird: Illinois-bred turf stakes preview

This Saturday’s card at Arlington features a pair of contentious turf route stakes for older Illinois-bred grass horses.

The Black Tie Affair, for open company, features a huge contingent from the Block barn, including last year’s dead-heat winner of the Cicero Handicap, Bold Rally.  The Mike Spellman Memorial Handicap, for fillies and mares, features the local return of several very classy Illinois-bred turf horses: Lovely Loyree, Prado’s Sweet Ride, and defending champion Cabana.

Head over to ShapperDaCapper, read the latest Chicago Railbird, and get ready for a pair of competitive stakes races at Arlington on Saturday!
