Little Mike charges to victory in 2012 Arlington Million

Arlington Park's International Festival of Racing reaches its culmination Saturday with an Arlington Million day card that's hard to beat. Besides the trio of Grade 1 races on the turf, there's the American St. Leger and a host of other competitive events to round out what always seems to be one of best betting and most thrilling racing days of the year.

Can Little Mike repeat in the Million against a salty mix of 12 rivals from across the country and around the world? Will Marketing Mix prove her mettle against several well-regarded European invaders? Will it be an American winner or an import in the highly-contentious field of the Secretariat Stakes for three-year-olds?

The Paulick Report's Scott Jagow and Natalie Voss continue their coverage from Chicago and share their thoughts on the big races of the day.

    A very solid horse in here with good credentials is Mull of Killough.
    He has had a win and a second in 3 graded stakes starts.
    I just hope being cast in the stall doesn’t come back to haunt him.
    I also liked The Apache as a long shot.

      My two picks gave it a real good effort.
      My son in law said we got the exactor.
      It was a good fair call by the Stewards.
      No complaints from us.

    The Apache’s loss after winning closed out a strange day for me. His disqualification caused me to lose two other inquiries at this track on the same day. I lost an exacta with the disqualification of # 9 when he crossed over and impeded the favorite # 1 in one race. I lost the second exacta with my horse was impeded in the same manner two races later. The horse who won was not disqualified. And the disqualification of The Apache closed out the triple. I do believe no one who wagered in the world’s history of racing has had three disqualifications in the same day program. Needless-to-say I was a little unhappy.
