Race 1
#3 Blue Forty has fairly strong numbers over the synthetic at Arlington and is successful at this distance. #6 Forget That Gal has a front running style that could lead to a steal here. #5 Dissension is making her first start off the claim after a decent 2nd  place finish last out at Turfway park.

Race 2
#6 Swaylon Braylon has been successful over synthetic surfaces and at the distance. #2 Expecting Cash is making his first start for the Amoss barn and draws Leparoux to the saddle. #4 Strong Resolve has been off awhile but he likes this track and past form suggests he is a strong contender.

Race 3
#8 Clear Code has been off since last fall but her form suggests she may the best in this race even off the layoff. #5 Inflation Target has plenty of early speed and loves the distance. May prove tough to catch. #3 Sasueno didn’t show much run last out but previous form is good enough to compete with these.

Race 4
#7 Is Silver Good comes over with the formidable team of Ramsey, Maker and Napravinik. Looks much the best in this race. #2 Atasheen is making his 2nd off the layoff and should be sharp. #3 Emotional Stroll comes off a big win and should round out the exotics.
$1 Trifecta Box

Race 5
#5 Florida Won has been training very well for his 2nd career start. An expensive yearling purchase, expect this Birdstone colt to show up ready to run. #11 Turf Kitten just missed at this distance on the turf last out and should be right there again. #7 Xaverian made up a lot of ground in his first try. Tough trip in that one and he should a lot closer here.
