The 32nd Arlington Million is one of the highlights of the Chicago sports calendar and Saturday's compelling card figures to add to the event's rich history. Utilizing the Betmix Angler handicapping software we found a promising Angle for both the main event and the Secretariat Stakes that, like the Million, is run over 10 furlongs.
Horses ranking first in Speed This Distance have been victorious in 5 of the past 12 graded stakes at 10 furlongs over the Arlington green. Among those is last year's Million hero Beach Patrol ($7.60) and two Secretariat champs in Oscar Performance ($5.00) and Adelaide ($4.20).
