INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF RACING JOCKEY ANGLES

No jockey has ever won the Arlington Million and the Beverly D. in the same season. Five jockeys have mounts in both races this afternoon. Internationally renowned European-based jockey Frankie Dettori will ride Godolphin's Slickly in the Million and Peter P. Scott's Diamond White in the Beverly D.

Jockey Jerry Bailey, also known internationally but American-based, will ride Juddmonte Farms' Chester House in the Arlington Million and Gary A. Tanaka's Snow Polina in the Beverly D.

Kent Desormeaux rides Trudy McCaffery, John Toffan and Robert Sangster's Bienamado in the Million and Team Valor's Elegant Ridge in the Beverly D.

Corey Nakatani has the mount on Columbine Stable, J. Merrick Jones Jr. & Tom Nicholls' Manndar in the Million and Edward T. McGrath's Country Garden in the Beverly D.

Mark Guidry, leading rider at Arlington International this season, rides Steven J. Gula's Mula Gula in the Million and My Jo Lee Stable's Wild Heart Dancing in the Beverly D.

Also, Guidry, a leading member of the Chicago riding colony for many years, is riding in the Arlington Million for the first time. Earlier this year, Guidry rode in the Kentucky Derby for the first time.

With more than twice as many wins this summer than his nearest pursuer, Guidry is enjoying his finest season at Arlington. Despite winning numerous riding titles at Chicago's other two ovals, Guidry has only one jockey championship to his credit at Arlington, when he took down leading rider honors in 1992.

No jockey has ever won the Arlington Million and the Secretariat in the same season. However, in 1984, jockey Chris McCarron won the Arlington Million aboard Dotsam Stable's John Henry and his brother Gregg McCarron won the Secretariat astride Cherry Valley Farm's Vision.

Jerry Bailey rides Juddmonte Farms' Chester House in the Million and Centennial Farms' King Cugat in the Secretariat.

Kent Desormeaux rides Trudy McCaffery, John Toffan & Robert Sangster's Bienamado in the Million and Rich Meadow Farm's Slew Valley in the Secretariat.

Corey Nakatani rides Columbine Stables, J. Merrick Jones Jr. & Tom Nicholls' Manndar in the Million and Gary A. Tanaka's Guillamou City in the Secretariat.

Alexis Solis rides Haras de la Pomme's Asidero in the Million and Erik Penser's Compton Bolter in the Secretariat.

No jockey has ever won the Beverly D. and the Secretariat in the same season.

Jerry Bailey rides Gary A. Tanaka's Snow Polina in the Beverly D. and Centennial Farm's King Cugat in the Secretariat.

Kent Desormeaux rides Team Valor's Elegant Ridge in the Beverly D. and Rich Meadow Farm's Slew Valley in the Secretariat.

Jockey Robby Albarado rides Sam-Son Farm's Only to You in the Beverly D. and Richard Nip & Scott Goldsher's Hymn in the Secretariat.

Corey Nakatani rides Edward T. McGrath's Country Garden in the Beverly D. and Gary A. Tanaka's Guillamou City in the Secretariat.

Michael Kinane rides Lewis Lakin's Alluring in the Beverly D. and Jayeff B Stable's Ciro in the Secretariat.

COUNTDOWN TO 1,000

Arlington jockey Eduardo Perez is one win away from the 1,000-win milestone, and has mounts in today's fourth, sixth and twelfth races.

INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF RACING TRAINER ANGLES

No trainer has ever saddled the winner of the Arlington Million and the Beverly D. in the same season.

Hall of Fame trainer Bobby Frankel has Juddmonte Farms' Chester House in the Arlington Million and Amerman Racing LLC's Happyanunoit in the Beverly D. today.

No trainer has ever saddled the winner in the Beverly D. and the Secretariat in the same season.

Trainer Mark Frostad has Sam-Son Farm's Only to You in the Beverly D. and Think Red in the Secretariat.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien has Lewis Lakin's Alluring in the Beverly D. and Jayeff B Stable's Ciro in the Secretariat.

Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott saddles Gary A. Tanaka's Snow Polina in the Beverly D. and Centennial Farms' King Cugat in the Secretariat.

(One trainer, LeRoy Jolley has saddled the winner of the Arlington Million and the Secretariat in the same season. Jolley won the Arlington Million in 1987 with B. M. Shannon's Manila and saddled 1987 Secretariat victor Stately Don, a sophomore owned by Shannon. However, no trainer saddles horses in the both the Million and the Secretariat this year.)

MCANALLY COULD BREAK MILLION RECORD

Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally, would break a record of saddling three Arlington Million winners, should Haras de la Pomme's Asidero win the Arlington Million today.

McAnally currently shares the three-Million-winners record with the late Charlie Whittingham, another Hall of Famer.

McAnally's previous Arlington Million winners were Dotsam Stable's John Henry in 1981 and 1984, as well as Corrodini, Winchell, Anderson & Whitham's Tight Spot in 1991.
