Arles is now worth more than she was a few moments ago after wiring the field in the Long Island Handicap (Grade 3) at Aqueduct. She and her jockey Nik Juarez controlled the race the whole one mile and a half and still looked strong at the finish. She leaves early tomorrow morning to be sold in the Fasig Tipton Select Sale on Monday so this win was very timely. Her previous two races in this country since coming from Germany have been seconds in Grade 3 races. Congratulations to Team Valor International and Green Lantern Stables.
