Arlington Park, The International Festival of Racing is on tap at Arlington Park on Saturday, with a 12-race card featuring lawn eleven races including a trio of prestigious Grade 1 races.

Three years of doing battle in the Secretariat and 400,000 (G1) is 1 ΒΌ miles along the grass. O’Prado Rice is seeking his first Grade 1 victory and comes with impressive performances in Grade 2 races at Colonial Downs.

A field of ten fillies and mares were entered and nine will run in the Beverly D. and 750,000 (G1). See Tomorrow favorite phrase Rainbow scratch due to a tendon injury discovered on Thursday.

The marquee event of the meeting on Arlington Park is the $ 1 million Arlington Million (G1), which usually attracts an international field.

The field of ten including three European carriers, but last year the winner Arlington million Gio Ponti is back looking to become the first back to back winner of the race.

Gio Ponti, winner of two Eclipse Awards last year (men older than, and the top turf male) lost his first three starts this year, but managed to get his nose in front at the wire in the Man O ‘War ‘(G1) at Belmont Park in his most recent departure.

Here are three selections for Saturday Grade 1 races at Arlington Park:

And 400,000 Secretariat (G1)

Rice O’Prado the price you deserve their favorite short in this race back to back on the plains of Colonial wins Colonial Turf Cup (G2) and Virginia Derby (G2). The second in the Virginia Derby was Interactif, which has again won the Hall of Fame (G2) at Saratoga Aug. 13.

The student was expelled Dale Romans as the favorite in his last two starts and will probably be a notch or two below even money here, but it seems to be very difficult to overcome.

The broker intriguing is the European invader Wigmore Hall for trainer Michael Bell. The gelding has won four of his nine starts, but has not won a race that are or have been enrolled in a Group race, which makes me think you do not have the class to compete in one grade level in the U.S.. UU.
