BetAmerica’s horse racing pick of the day: Arlington Park, Sept. 10
Thursday's action at Arlington Park is loaded with an eight-race card. Here are our weekday picks and plays for Thoroughbred racing at Arlington on Thursday, Sept. 10.
#2 Never Have I Ever (4-1 on the morning line) has dominated three straight races since returning from a layoff in July, winning by a minimum of 2 3/4 lengths while posting three consecutive Brisnet Speed ratings in the 90-91 range — the fastest recent figures posted by any horse in Thursday’s field.
Never Have I Ever has been particularly strong since being claimed out of his comeback run by hot trainer Brittany Vanden Berg, a 36% winner this year. Never Have I Ever has shown serious speed, crushing a pair of turf sprints in gate-to-wire fashion. This son of Grade 1-winning turf sprinter No Nay Never looms as the one to catch in this 5-furlong dash.
Never Have I Ever (IRE) kicks off the Pick 6 as the 1/5F for a third straight meet win. Chris Emigh on the winner trained by Brittany Vanden Berg for RSR Racing Services, LLC. (Robert S. Rhoads) in 1:04.43 (Good 13' out Lane 5). Race 4 and 8 will also be run in the same lane. pic.twitter.com/88L1CZUUyx— Arlington International Racecourse (@ArlingtonRacing) August 27, 2020
Vanden Berg wins at a 45% rate with last-out winners, and jockey Christopher Emigh retains the mount for a third straight race, which sounds like a recipe for success.
