Publication Wins at Arlington
Sep. 29, 2001
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) _ Publication nipped 17-1 long shot It'sallinthechase by a neck Saturday to win the $150,000 Arlington-Washington Futurity at Arlington Park.
Publication, ridden by Randall Meier, took a short lead in the stretch and held off the late challenge from It'sallinthechase.
``He relaxed, and when I called on him, he got his head in front pretty easy,'' Meier said. ``He was loafing a little bit and I think he had another gear if he got challenged again.''
Publication covered the fast mile dirt track in 1:38.78, and paid $12.20, $5.80 and $3.40. It'sallinthechase returned $11 and $4, while Dubai Squire, third in the field of seven 2-year-olds, paid $2.40.
