Arlington Million 2012: Entries, Post Positions and Morning Line Odds

Boisterous, 3rd in the G1-Manhattan and 2nd in the G3-Arlington Handicap, drew post position #2 and is the 4/1 morning line favorite for the 30th running of the Grade 1 Arlington Million at Arlington Park on Saturday, August 18th. The Arlington Million will go to post at 5:44pm Eastern and will be televised by HRTV and WGN.

The Million drew a field of 11 and appears to feature a wide-open and competitive field; there are nine horses with morning line odds between 4/1 and 12/1.

Marketing Mix drew post position #8 and is the 3/1 morning line favorite in the Beverly D. following a pair of wins at Woodbine against graded stakes company (G2-Dance Smartly and G2-Nassau). Aidan O'Brien's Up (IRE) ships in from Ireland after finishing 3rd in both the G3-Kilroy Stakes and G1-Pretty Polly at the Curragh.

Top three-year-old turf colt Silver Max leads a field of eight in the Secretariat Stakes and is your 9/5 morning line favorite. Bayrir (FR), winner or a pair of stakes in France, including the Group 2 Prix Eugene Adam at Maisons Laffitte, drew post position #7.

This year's Million Day will feature a new stakes race on the card: the $400,000 American St. Leger at 1 11/16 miles on the turf course. The American St. Leger is modeled after the English and Irish versions of the St. Leger. A full field of 12 drew into the St. Leger, including European raiders Jakkalberry (IRE), Bridge of Gold and Zuider Zee (GER).

Below are the entries, post positions and morning line odds for Saturday's G1-Arlington Million, G1-Beverly D., G1-Secretariat Stakes and American St. Leger. (Odds for the American St. Leger will be added when released by Arlington Park.)
