Mr. Ark is entered in the 6th race Thursday night. He drew post position 3 with Francisco Arrieta aboard. The race is a mile over the dirt course.
The conditions of the race are: $4,000 claiming for horses that have not won since September 15 OR horses that have started here but not finished third or better.
It will be Group 4s turn in the paddock marking perhaps the first time that four of more paddock groups have made 2 passes through the paddock in a season. That said, we don’t have a visit to the winners’ circle yet, so that would be a nice benchmark to hit as well!
We’ll look into space in Silks and let you all know when we get the preview up early next week.
