The card at Arlington will be filled with value. You will need WinningPonies.com more than ever. After taking a look at the card (and expecting the track to be a little soft for turf runners), here are a few plays that have caught my eye, and may require that extra look before going to the windows.

Race #7 – #3 St. Joe

This Darin Miller trainee looks to have been coming this direction for quite awhile. Loves the poly, and Miller does well with coming off a rest break. Be sure to look this one over, and use WinningPonies.com to find your value with exactas and trifectas. This may be a a great race to extend your multirace wagers for a sweet payday.

Race #8 – Plan

Aidan O’Brien has sent the bookmakers across the ponds to the walls. This runner making a third start off a layoff is well worth the coin. He put gas in his tank at the Curragh in Ireland, and should be able to translate that into a beautiful effort today. Add in lasix and Johnny Murtagh in the irons, and this guy looks to be the key to a banner day. Once again, this is only one player in the race and WinningPonies.com can identify where you need to go to maximize value. The sharpies will be watching, so why not you?

Overall, don’t be afraid to wager with both hands on this day. The pools are swelled, and all connections coming over the pond are not here for the ribs. This can be a day where a few runners can make a difference in a winning day, and a winning meet.
