  • Kasaqui Hits High Note in Grade III Arlington Handicap

    Wimborne Farm’s Kasaqui (ARG) proved much the best for trainer Ignacio Correas, IV as he won the 81st running of the Grade III $125,000 Arlington Handicap at Arlington International Racecourse on July 9 and punched his ticket to the Grade I $1,000,000 Arlington Million. The 6-year-old son of Lasting Approval sat just off the leaders through the opening six furlongs, was guided outside on the turn by jockey Robby Albarado then made the lead entering the stretch and cleared the field under mild urging to win by 1¼ lengths in a final time of 1:55.62 for the 1 3/16 miles on the turf.
