Horse racing has a way of coming full circle, even after an eventful year.
On August 19 of last year, SMOKE ‘N GLOAT went off the favourite in an Illinois-bred maiden special weight at Arlington. A longshot, 12/1 first-time starter DEVILEYE, rode the rail to a narrow victory. Their paths diverged from there, not to cross again until today’s Arlington Heights Stakes.
Head over to Picks and Ponderings, take a look back at today’s Arlington Heights Stakes, and find out what Devileye may be looking at next!
