Itís a Filly Duo Out for an early lead
        Ruffian  🐆  + Thunder Cat 🐱
              Heading into the turn
With Tiger Dancer and Digger right on their tails

Out of the turn they come and it is Thunder Cat alone on the lead now
Tiger Dancer has moved into second with Digger a half length back

Ruffian did not handle the turn well and dropping back to 3rd

Good Arlington Finale form Thunder Cat!!! ;D

With TURF being my preferred racing surface, watching the races on Saturday was a bittersweet experience!!! :(

The Arlington Million was one of my favorite races mainly because of the initial race champion - John Henry!!!!


Other favorite winners - The Tin Man / Jambalaya (with Robby A. on board) / Gio Ponti / Little Mike / The Pizza Man / Bricks and Mortar!! :happy:

Shoulda Woulda Coulda with this years pick for me!!! :OMG: Went with the wrong English Channel entry (Bizzee Channel - Mizzen Mast connection) over Two Emmy's!!! :headshake:

Sad to see this Classic go!!! :'(

But the wonderful memories of races past...

"Make Me Smile"


"Now I need you
More than ever
No more crying
We're together
Tell me, you will stay
Make me smile..."

Another outstanding call Lady Cat!!! :forruffian: :thanks:

Until next time...see ya'll in the Starting Gate!!! 8) :rhrse:
