Here is the ABC grid for Friday, August 16, at Arlington Park, which John G. Dooley just called one of his favorite days of the year. I can't imagine how excited he is for Million day itself, then!

In addition to the great wagering menu Arlington offers, adds to the excitement with day two of Summer Showdown with a $3,000 carryover and Let 8 Ride requiring a $91 win wager on today's eighth race, which as you can probably surmise from the grid below I'd put on #3, Gostosa, who looks to be lone speed in that affair.

Back to Summer Showdown, obviously the lone "A" picks are the tabs in those particular races. In the 2yo races (races 2 & 7) I'd be inclined to follow the money and bet the shortest price of my "A" picks.

Good luck to all those playing, and save some bankroll for the first-ever Jackpot 5 wager that launches Saturday only on TwinSpires with a $25,000 "carryover" for a unique winner.
