.The highlight of the racing day is the renowned Arlington Million:

 Illinois’s .. flag..original, extravagant summertime sports party.. beer
  
....$... dollar... dollar....,,$$.. dollar..$... dollar... dollar..mo money ..mo money


 While a horse race is at the heart of the spectacle, horse horse horse horse horse

there are many intriguing aspects of the Arlington Million experience...

history and tradition, special performances, beard
fashionable apparel and overpriced yet delectable cuisine... popcorn, cheese, rat, carrot

I will be going with Real Solution in the Million....

He will need a bit of luck as I expect him to be along the rail toward the back of the field....

i am still looking over the data..

lots of good racing familiar looking names in all the stakes.
looking at the 3 yo secretariat stakes , there doesn't seem to be a standout that excelled on the derby trail that shifted to turf, so that one seems a bit more difficult at first glance

i'll post picks, as I hope all who read will, especially those with the barn level knowledge

At what point do you say that there's enough question on the normalization of the info on internationals that you stay away from the bet?  Capping a race like the million (even more so the horizontals) is a mess

Some of the HRTV talking heads were going on about that one early today, so you're not alone. Good luck.

Call me crazy but I'm going to bet Nates Mineshaft. I don't think little Mike will get the lead and I don't think Rosario will use his horse trying to keep pace with a 30-1 horse. If you leave ET on an easy lead he will make you pay in the end.

it amazes me how anyone sheepishly puts up with Arlington. Ten to 15 % of the race is unwatchable behind the willow trees. Don't you understand how they laugh at the fans(sheep)? Get a spine! Click!

They either need to make some firewood, or put the cameras higher up or in different locations.

I'm glad it's not me making the call.   From the head on, the ten pushed on the one for a good long time.   From the side view, the one had his shot to win but the ten wanted it more  and came back.   If it were me, I give it to the ten.  The one wasn't blocked, from what I can tell, so the one had his shot but couldn't get by the ten when they came eye to eye.

Still can't believe WGN didn't stick with the broadcast for a few extra minutes. Dumb decision and makes everyone look bad.

Then why do you watch?  Stay away, you won't be missed!  We had good races, great weather, and a large crowd.  What more can a normal person ask for?

I have been saying this for years. I love the track, and go to Arlington every time I get to Chicago, however, I cannot understand the stubbornness of not making the races watchable for the real racing fans. bang head bang head
It literally has become as if horses run into a tunnel, and how they come out is fine, after all who really needs to see that portion of the race? sarcasm sarcasm

A winner is a winner Ex man.congrats

lord knows I have picked many losers!

Was so pissed watching thinking he had come in second-

& have to agree - it would be nice if they trimmed some bush out there as the brush is getting a little thick.....but if that is the biggest complaint then so be it...

I know many people that sit in the infield for the Ky derby to see 2 seconds of horses..

Not sure if you saw the paddock after the race but saw an overserved douche almost go after Alan Garcia.....He was mumbling something about him,& the stewards...

HERE IS A LITTLE PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT....

IF YOU ARE WEARING JEAN SHORTS, WORK BOOTS, & A PATRICK KANE WALGREENS T SHIRT...YOU ARE MOST LIKELY A DOUCHE

When I returned home from AP I watched WGN's broadcast of the Million race(s) that I had DVR'd. What a sophomoric piece of crap vs previous telecasts. Too bad - but at least the live version and day were outstanding.

It was a local production,so no one expected an Emmy.No budget means poor production values.At least AP got an infomercial out of it.

It's only been a few years since an NHL overtime playoff game got cut off in favor of the Kentucky derby, this isn't a big deal imo
