It’s closing week at Arlington, and Wednesday of this week is the only Wednesday of the entire Thoroughbred racing meet. Episode 71 of Chicago Race of the Day starts with a news brief, since there was an important development at the racing board meeting that will probably be the talk of Chicago racing over the next week.
Then, of course, you’ll get the handicapping you almost certainly came here for: I look at Race 8, an Illinois-bred turf dash allowance. It has an overflow field, features one of the coolest old guys on the circuit, an intrepid three-year-old filly ready to face the boys, and a stalk-and-pounce standout.
