Lucrative Penn Mile Bringing Some Big Ones To Pa

Penn National will be looking to follow up on the success of last year's inaugural Penn Mile card, which shattered numerous pari-mutuel records at the facility including the largest all-sources handle for a single card, with the second running of the $500,000 Penn Mile this Saturday. 

This lucrative race has attracted some of the top sophomore turf runners in the U. S., including the graded-winning Bobby’s Kitten.

Storming Inti was a game second at Churchill Downs on the Kentucky Derby undercard and is very consistent and a danger for sure cutting back to a mile. Spiral S. (G2) hero We Miss Artie showed little on the dirt in the Kentucky Derby, but the Pletcher pupil has always looked better on the grass and synthetic, and we wouldn’t sleep on his chance here, giving owner Ken Ramsey a strong one-two punch in this spot. American Turf (G2) hero Global View has a big turn of foot and might fall into a dream trip in this one with speed signed on.  Spiral second Harry’s Holiday is also among the contenders of this fine event.

Penn National also boasts a fine undercard of stakes action, with four black-type races on the slate. The $200,000 Mountainview H., $150,000 Governor’s H, $100,000 Penn Oaks and the $50,000 Penn Dash lead the way of a huge day of racing in the Keystone State.

Post time for the 1st race on Penn Mile day is set for 6 p.m. (EDT), with HRTV providing in-studio coverage of the event.
