GRASS & GO: Arlington Million XXVI/ Two-Year-Old SPRINTS! +SAUHBR Week3 PICKS

My race choices this weekend are polar opposites: Gr1 Turf classics on Saturday at Arlington, and Two-Year-Old Sprints on dirt/poly on Sunday!  Whee!

This year’s Million looks to be a Euro romp, unless by some chance Silverfoot catches the Jambalaya/Tin Man/John Henry spirit and pulls a major upset.  Archipenko is the early fave, with Einstein leading the US contingent.  But here are my picks:

 

1)Mount Nelson
2)Archipenko
3)Stream Cat

Mount Nelson just won a hard-fought Coral Eclipse stakes and O’Brien has been on fire this year.  Archipenko will give him a run, but I see the son of The Rock pulling through.  Einstein has to do scads better than he has in his last 2 to even get close to the Euros.  Stream Cat actually won his last out, at Arlington, so I give him an edge over the Scientist.
