Arlington International Racecourse Barn Notes: Friday, August 11


Permian Prepared for Secretariat Performance
• Ascend Seeks Second Grade I in Arlington Million
• Rouget’s Duo Get Final Prep Before Million Day

PERMIAN PREPARED FOR SECRETARIAT PERFORMANCE

With Scottish withdrawn from Saturday’s Grade I Arlington Million, the onus is on Mark Johnston trainee Permian to bring home a win for Team Godolphin in the Grade I Secretariat Stakes. If that puts any pressure on the Royal Ascot winner, he has not shown it in his morning gallops at Arlington International Racecourse. Going to the track for the first time without the company of Scottish, the 3-year-old son of Teofilo (IRE) took the change in stride and without turning a hair. After cantering a full lap around the course, the colt strolled through the paddock to school, taking his time before returning to the track and taking another lap. In total he spent about 30 minutes out on the racecourse.

Arrogate Drills Seven Furlongs in 1:25.20 Tuesday at Del Mar


Working on his own with jockey Martin Garcia in the tack, superstar Arrogate clipped off a solid seven-furlong drill in 1:25.20 Tuesday at Del Mar as trainer Bob Baffert and regular rider Mike Smith looked on from the track’s grandstand.

The big, gray colt broke off from the five-furlong pole at 7:55 on an overcast morning and worked about five lanes out from the rail. Track clockers caught him in splits of :25.20, :37.20, :48.40, 1:00.60 and 1:12.60 along the way. He was timed on the gallop out in 1:38.20. The son of Unbridle’s Song easily moved past a pair of unrelated workers down on the rail in the stretch and kept to his business. Garcia gave him a bit of encouragement toward the end of the work.

Top Australian Horse Racing Coming Up in 2017


Australian Horse Racing: a National Pastime

Australia’s oldest sporting activity is horse racing. Since the early days of this former British colony, racing has been enjoyed by people from all walks of life. Today Australia boasts over 400 tracks –more than any other nation.

It is estimated that fixed-odds betting on Australian horse racing has grown significantly over the last few years -- from $14.3 billion wagered in 2009 to $22 billion today, according to TAB. Racing is responsible for the permanent employment of tens of thousands of Australians both directly and in associated industries.

Furthermore, almost every Australian adult (99.9%) has participated in the third most attended spectator sport in the country., even if they only bought a ticket for a small bet in the office round-up for the Melbourne Cup.

Dancer Memorial next for award-winning Walner


If Walner’s six rivals last week felt as though they were run over when the returning Dan Patch Award winner made his seasonal debut with a 7-1/2 length victory in 1:51.1, it’s no wonder.

“You sit behind him and it feels like you’re driving a Corvette with a Mack truck engine,” Walner’s driver, Tim Tetrick, said after the win. “He’s ready to rock.”

Walner’s time, which came in a conditioned race at the Meadowlands, equaled filly Ariana G’s mark for the fastest mile by a 3-year-old trotter this year. Walner returns to action Saturday when he competes in the first of two divisions of the Stanley Dancer Memorial for 3-year-old male trotters at the Meadowlands.
