    Default ARLINGTON MILLION TRENDS 2014

    The Arlington Million was first run in 1981 and was the first ever race to offer a purse of $1 million as the prize. It takes place at Arlington Park on Saturday 16th August and, as per usual, there looks likely to be a European presence in the race. Also always hold on to your dockets following this race, the first past the post has been thrown out 3 times in past 11 runnings, including in last year’s race.



    Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years:

    horses aged 4 or 5 have a combined record of 9-10-64
