The racing in Chicago can be incredible all summer long. It does not end with the Million, and value is found everyday.

On Thursday at Arlington, I have a couple of runners that need a look. Be sure to see where they fit in the tier levels, and pair them up with others for sweet gimmicks. WinningPonies has been red-hot with exotics all year long, and the best is yet to come.

Go to Race #1 and gander at #1 Bosco Rules (2-1). Chris Emigh is in the saddle for Christine Janks. they team up to win 15% these past few months, and are a staggering 54% ITM. This runner is 3/3 ITM at Arlington, and is 3/3 on the all-weather surface. He has speed to burn, and the rail has been the place to be.

Let us adjourn to Race #3, and #1 Prairie Prize at 3-1 is waiting for us. Tanner Riggs is the pilot, and this horse cuts back from 7f to 6f. He was just beaten going 7 panels, and the rail is winning at 22%. The shorter distance could be the tonic, and be sweeter than inner-city ribs on Saturday night. He is 4/5 on the all-weather surface, and the rail is a good spot.

Here are a couple that deserve a good look. Be sure to always run them against the data for the day, and you will find that your percentages will go up as a capper. The tier levels and speed ratings will give you a barometer of where and how you should use these runners. Always look for the multi-race bets, and this will maximize your value. Thursday is a couple of days away, and we are always looking for the next round of value plays.

Good luck!
