Thursday racing has returned to Arlington International Racecourse, and with it some solid promotions at

  1. 20x points when you win $50 or more,
  2. 20% bonus on the $25,000 late Pick 4 (races 5-8), and
  3. Let 8 Ride on race 8 with $1,500 added

The trio of bonuses makes race 8 especially lucrative because your $8 win bet could return the $50 needed to win 20x points, and it's the last leg of the bonus Pick 4.

Today's 8th race is a skullbuster: a two-year-old filly maiden special weight turf sprint with six first-time starters among the 11 entrants expected to go. The filly I'm most interested in is #3 Wily, who's 12-to-1 on the morning line, but I wouldn't mind to see her shorter than that as a vote of confidence considering the pedigree has plenty of wins among juveniles and on the turf. 

From a Pick 4 standpoint, all my hopes and dreams will rest on #7 No Flowers in leg 3, race 7. First off the claim but second off the layoff, No Flowers holds a significant Speed and Prime Power advantage via's Ultimate Past Performances.
