A Chicago-Style Million for The Pizza Man

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (August 15, 2015) – Midwest Thoroughbreds’ Illinois-bred turf phenom The Pizza Man stamped his ticket to the Grade I $3,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf with a saucy performance in the Grade I $1,000,000 Arlington Handicap Saturday afternoon at Arlington International Racecourse. After breaking ninth of 13 from post seven, the son of the champion English Channel – fourth in the 2006 Million – accomplished what his sire could not when settling in ninth, advancing while racing four-wide and then circling rivals, rallying determinedly to win by a neck over Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s favored Big Blue Kitten. The victory was a popular one,  producing a deafening roar from the crowd and taking a slice out of history, as The Pizza Man became the first Prairie State-bred to win the state’s most prestigious race.
