Silverfoot to run Arlington Million?

July 7, 2008  |  By Benjamin Miraski

It appears that the Arlington Million might be the next stop on Silverfoot's schedule.

The 8-year old, who won Friday's Stars and Stripes Handicap at Arlington Park, may run in the Arlington Million on August 9, according to trainer Dallas Stewart.

“The Arlington Million is one of several possibilities we are now taking under consideration,” trainer Dallas Stewart said Saturday afternoon while speaking over the phone from his Kentucky base of operations.

Should Silverfoot win the Million, he would become the third horse eight years or older to take home the prize in the 26 year history of the race.

The winner of the Arlington Million also qualifies for an automatic entry in the Breeders' Cup Turf race, held on October 25th.
