Picks and Ponderings: Previewing the 2017 Ride to the Million

The name may have changed, but it’s still one of the best local racing days all year.

Arlington may be calling it the Ride to the Million presented by Miller Lite (instead of Million Preview Day), but Saturday’s features are the same four local preps for the Arlington International Festival of Racing that you know and love: the Arlington Handicap (G3), the Stars and Stripes Stakes (G3), the Modesty Handicap (G3), and the American Derby (G3).  These four graded turf stakes give locals the chance to test their mettle, and give shippers the chance to compete over the local oval, tighten the screws, and make sure they will be ready to handle the course come Arlington Million (G1) Day on August 12.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of all four graded stakes races at Arlington this Saturday, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
