Sounds like a Pink Floyd song? Well, you just got past your first Jeopardy question. But, if you want to make it a true “Daily-Double” you may want to take a gander at Arlington Park in Race #9 on Saturday.

This is the Diamond Ring Stakes, and it is worth a sweet $50,000.

You may want to examine these three runners in this race:

#7 Romacaca (3-1) is a 3-year-old filly who scored a game maiden win on the turf at Gulfstream this spring, in only her third career start.   E.T. Baird stays aboard, and has hit over 50% riding for the barn this meet.

Also take a look at #4 Oculuna (7-2). Faded down the lane at Churchill last out, and retains the services of one of the best turf riders in the world, Julien Leparoux.

The last runner to peek at is: #5 Tale of the South (10-1). Gets more ground to play with today, and is in the capable hands of Michael Stidham.

So, be sure to download your data, and make a solid play on this race as it offers value. I would look heavily at the tiers to find value, and be sure to use this race as part of the Pick-4. Of the races on the card, this one stands out to me. I think you can score and take it to the windows…..
