Summer racing is some of the best all year round, and Saturday delivered one of the most memorable racing days of 2017.

Arlington Park’s International Festival of Racing, highlighted by the Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Arlington Million and Beverly D. Stakes, is the track’s year-in, year-out signature event, and the staff at the suburban Chicago venue pull out all of the stops to welcome out-of-town visitors.

One of the most enjoyable experiences for any racehorse owner is the process of naming their future runner. Coming up with a horse’s name is a creative process, and the name that sticks to a horse is usually one that has some connection to the name of the horse’s father (sire), mother (dam) or both. But there are no hard-and-fast rules. 

Welcome to Tacos and Trifectas! Each week, America’s Best Racing’s Southern California correspondent Jose Contreras - @LosPonies to those who follow him on Twitter - will provide a taco review along with a selection that he will key in trifecta bets in hopes of winning some cash to buy more tacos! Contreras will map out a trifecta betting strategy for how to key his main pick and keep track of his return on investment (ROI).

Stop back each week if you love tacos and want a trifecta play!

The Road to the Breeders’ Cup continues this Saturday, Aug. 5, with the Grade 1, $1.2 million Whitney Stakes at Saratoga Race Course. The 1 1/8-mile test is a Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series “Win and You’re In” qualifying race for the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov.
