Saturday’s ten-race card at Arlington features a trio of stakes races; this piece takes a look at all of them. As planned all meet, the card features a pair of $75,000 listed stakes for two-year-olds: the Arlington-Washington Futurity and the Arlington-Washington Lassie. Both of the races drew well-subscribed fields of two-year-olds: ten males in the Futurity, and a full gate of fourteen fillies for the Lassie. A late addition to Saturday’s card is the Avers Wexler Memorial Stakes, an overnight stakes race for older fillies and mares, traversing two turns on the main track at Arlington. Despite the short notice, the race drew a healthy field of nine to compete for the $65,000 purse.
