Picks and Ponderings: 2018 Springfield Stakes and Purple Violet Stakes Preview

We hope you’ve caught your breath after a whirlwind Triple Crown season, because the stakes calendar at Arlington continues this week.

Saturday afternoon three-year-olds from the Land of Lincoln take the spotlight.  The card features a pair of main-track miles, the Purple Violet Stakes for fillies and the Springfield Stakes unrestricted by sex.  Both races offer a $50,000 base purse, plus an extra $25,000 for anyone by an Illinois sire.

Read on for my analysis of both races in my latest piece at Picks and Ponderings!
