Arlington Race 1, 6 ½ Furlongs Claiming $7,500 (4:00 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Silky Sami (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #6 Retail Reger (9/5)
Other Contenders: #2 Sorta Sassy (3/1), #5 Da Nella (4/1)
Analysis: Retail Reger runs for ultra-successful Larry Rivelli after he claimed from her last race. That’s enough to earn top honors. Sorta Sassy comes back from a layoff, turns back to a sprint and has faced tough company in past, plus she loves the surface. Da Nella won last and will be the likely pace setter. Could be very tough with an easy lead. Silky Sami closed well in last and could be an upsetter if the pace goes her way. Hard to ignore a nine time winner.
Arlington Race 4, 7 Furlongs Claiming $7,500 2L (5:31 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Rose of Ascot (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: # 4 Lisa’s Mad Again (2/1)
Other Contenders: #1 Anychanceatadance (3/1), #6 Mindy Can Dance (7/2)
Analysis: Lisa’s Mad Again is probably still hot about the poor start she had stumbling from the gate last start. She came from the heavens to lose only by a neck and rates top consideration here. Anychanceatadance has a little back class and definitely improved in last pair of races at Arlington. Mindy Can Dance is the probable pace setter and not afraid of a fight. Could lead the whole way home. Rose of Ascot has experienced major improvement since removing blinkers. Could be a major factor stalking the field.
