This Saturday, Colonial Downs in New Kent County, Virginia will play host to the $1,000,000 Arlington Million race, where the winner will also book their ticket into the Breeders’ Cup Turf race at the end of the season. This will be the first year that the Arlington Million takes place at Colonial Downs, and it will return to its original distance of 1.25 miles.
Atone is the favorite at odds of 7-2 in this field of 11 horses. That said the race is really up for grabs with 7 of the 11 horses having 10-1 or shorter odds.
In this article I will outline the morning line odds for the 2023 Arlington Million, give you my pick for the race winner and also provide a simple guide to getting your Arlington Million bets placed online this Saturday.
2023 Arlington Million Odds
Here are the morning line odds (and post positions) for the Arlington Million. The odds will change throughout race day depending on the amount of money wagered on each horse.
- Strong Tide 15/1
- Never Explain 6/1
- Set Piece 6/1
- Atone 7/2
- Rockemperor 5/1
- Master Piece 12/1
- Strong Quality 12/1
- Catnip 8/1
- Adhamo 10/1
- Win for the Money 20/1
- Santin 8/1
As you can see Atone is the favorite heading into the race, but Rockemperor, Never Explain, Set Piece, Catnip, and Santin all have 8/1 or shorter odds as well.
I’m going with a longshot to win the race. I like Strong Quality at odds of 12/1. He finished 5th at the Manhattan G1 race in June at a distance of 1.25 miles, so he is coming off a race of the same distance, which should help prepare him. He also won his previous two races, which shows he has the ability to cross the line first. This isn’t a very strong field in the Arlington Million, so I think Strong Quality could surprise and earn the win.
Play: Strong Quality 12/1
