Pa­trol wins Mil­lion

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Beach Pa­trol has won the Ar­ling­ton Mil­lion, snap­ping a six-race skid and earn­ing a berth in the $4 mil­lion Breed­ers’ Cup Turf this fall. Rid­den by Joel Rosario, Beach Pa­trol ran 1¼ miles on a firm turf course in 2:02.39 on Sat­ur­day at Ar­ling­ton Park in sub­ur­ban Chicago. He paid $11.60, $6 and $4 as the 9-2 sec­ond choice in the 12-horse field. Fan­ci­ful An­gel, a 73-1 shot, fin­ished sec­ond. Deauville, the 9-5 fa­vorite, paid $2.80 to show. Beach Pa­trol hadn’t won since last year’s Sec­re­tariat at Ar­ling­ton Park. His vic­tory com­pleted a big day for New York-based trainer Chad Brown, who also won the $600,000 Beverly D. Stakes with Dacita at the same track. Dacita earned an au­to­matic berth in the

BC Filly & Mare Turf. Beach Pa­trol set­tled just off pace­set­ter Oak Brook in the early go­ing. With Oak Brook weak­en­ing com­ing into the stretch, Beach Pa­trol dug in and inched away from Deauville in the fi­nal fur­longs. En­ter­pris­ing was fourth, fol­lowed by As­cend, Oak Brook, Divisidero, Os­car Nom­i­nated, Kasaqui, Mekhtaal, Ghost Hunter and 2015 win­ner The Pizza Man.
