    I will go with Robert Bruce for the Summer Millions Arlington. To be honest. I don’t even know when to pick what. If it’s to late then just scratch it.

    I don't know if I need to pick for the summer millions...but if I do...I choose Almanaar
  • Rules are on page 512 but:

    Picks are to be made THE DAY BEFORE OR DAY OF EACH RACE, starting at 12:01 AM EASTERN (that's one minute after midnight Thursday night... or Friday morning... depending on your point of view) and ending an hour before post time as it appears on this thread.


    AND, if you want to play, you have to make a pick.
    Jan and Carol did not pick Haskell horses. You can take the 7 points for finishing last or just not participate. Your choice.

    She was elderly (I think) and ill (in a wheelchair.)
    Kenny McPeek announced it when being interviewed about Darling before the race.

    In-Foal Amapola Dominates Monmouth’s Incredible Revenge Stakes

    by Press Release | 08.11.2018 | 6:58pm

    Amapola, four months in foal, made what was likely her last race before motherhood a memorable one, drawing off to win the $75,000 Incredible Revenge Stakes by 5½ lengths on Saturday at Monmouth Park.

    The 4-year-old filly, in foal to Divining Rod, sat off an early two-horse speed duel before making an explosive mood midway through the turn to eliminate any doubt about the outcome.

    Trainer Arnaud Delacour said this would likely be Amapola's final race before she gives birth.

    “According to the vet this is the last month she should probably race,” said Delacour. “She doesn't show yet. She's not especially big. So it's perfectly safe. Maybe we can get one more race out of her this month. We'll see. But this may have been her last one.”
    Shadwell Farm

    The overwhelming 1-2 favorite, ridden by Paco Lopez and owned by Lael Stables, Amapola covered the 5½ furlongs over a fast track in 1:03.83. The race was originally scheduled to be run on the turf.

    “I was actually happy when they switched this to the main track,” said Delacour. “I think it gives her a little bit of an edge on the dirt. She's a very fast filly and at five and half furlongs on the dirt I was confident she would run well.”

    The daughter of Broken Vow-Dinner With D C also became a two-time winner at the current Monmouth Meet, having won an optional claimer on the grass on July 21.

    Lopez said it was just the third time he'd even ridden a horse that was in foal.

    “It doesn't happen a lot. But you can't tell with her,” he said. “She was in foal the last time I rode her here (in that July 21 race) too. So there is only one other horse I have ever ridden that was in foal.”
