We here at Chicago Race of the Day absolutely love two-year-old races, and there’s yet another one on Saturday, June 26! Episode 227 of Chicago Race of the Day delves into Saturday’s 5th race at Arlington, a maiden special weight for two-year-olds at five furlongs on the polytrack. They don’t come by often, so we take them when we can!
It’s a big day Saturday at Arlington, too — not just baby races, after all! There are two stakes on the card, the Chicago Handicap (G3) and the Listed Hanshin Cup. I had a conversation with Joe Wulffe of The Daily Gallop at the track about both of the stakes races, so make sure to watch our discussion and read my Twitter thread for a summary of my main points!
