ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. --- Mt. Brilliant Stable LLC., Valerie Miller and Tim Doocy have been named Arlington International Racecourse's Owner, Trainer and Jockey of the Month, respectively, for August.

During the month, Mt. Brilliant Stable of owner H. Greg Goodman sent five horses to the post, winning with four of them topped by Desert Air's score in the $60,000 Ridan Handicap.

Trainer Valerie Miller made the most of her small stable. She sent out five horses during the month of August and earned three victories. Proving that percentage is no fluke, for the meet Miller is eight for 17 overall with two seconds and two third.

Tim Doocy won 11 races during the month, highlighted by three overnight stakes wins in a two-day period. Doocy tallied astride Dust On the Bottle in the Buckpasser Stakes and Kings Command in the Bet Twice Stakes on Arlington Million Day and returned the following day to take top honors aboard White Beauty in the Estrapade Stakes. Earlier in the meet, Doocy became the 37th rider in history to win 4,000 races.

Goodman, Miller and Doocy, who will be honored in separate winner's circle ceremonies Saturday at the Chicago area racetrack, each will receive a $100 gift certificate from Bob Chinn's Crab House in Wheeling, Ill.
