On a day when nothing seemed to go right for American turf horses, it seemed only fitting that one of the nation's best was narrowly defeated in the Arlington Million (gr. IT) Aug. 11. After leading in deep stretch, last year's Million champion The Tin Man was overtaken in the final few strides by Canadian-bred Jambalaya, who rallied from well off the pace to win by a three-quarters of a length and earn a berth in the Breeders' Cup Turf later this year at Monmouth Park.

Countdown to the Cup: Where Will the Cat Strike Next?

Four Years Later, Tin Man Repeats in American

Ageless The Tin Man earned a repeat victory in the $250,000 American Invitational Handicap (gr. IIT) Sunday on the Hollywood Park turf, which isn't all that remarkable until you consider that his first win in the 1 1/8-mile event came in 2002.

Lead Not Necessary for The Tin Man

If there were betting on who will have the early lead in Saturday's Arlington Million (gr. IT), the Richard Mandella-trained The Tin Man, owned by Ralph E. & Aury Todd, would be a prohibitive 1-5 favorite. However, the Hall of Fame conditioner says that his charge is comfortable coming from just off the lead should such a scenario develop.
