Chi-town is all about fun. The racing is fun, and if you have never seen the oval, it is a sight to behold. I love to make the trek, and even better is to make your way up for The Arlington Million. But, in the meantime, here are a few plays worth a good look.

Arlington Park – Saturday

Race #1- #4 Oro Gatita (4-1)

Jesus Castanon is up for Mike Campbell, and they do a 25%, and 50% clip as a team. 6/10 ITM, and claiming $5,000 the last 3 races is her wheel house. Jock change from Alavarado to Castanon today, and she will surely close from the speed of #2 and #3.

Race #3 – #1 Bob’s Mountain (5-2)

Innosencio Diego and Ingrid Mason hook up. They have a nice record of 34% and 62% ITM. Drops down from mdn special weight down to mdn claiming 10,000. 3rd off a layoff, and I would look for a very quick break as the rail is winning at a 20% clip.

Race #4 – #1A Thewayitusedtobe (4-1)

Broke his maiden two back, and then he travelled to Churchill Downs to run in the G-2 Bashford Manor. That was a just a little out of his reach, and the drop in class will be welcome. Even though he was over his head, he showed blistering speed. Julio Felix is in the irons, and he is 37% ITM speed winning rider.

So get ’em while they’re hot. Just pair them up with WinningPonies predictions, and you won’t be wrong. This can be used as a good beginning, and there may be good value at the bottom of the tier levels.

Good luck!
