Real Solution won the Arlington Million on Saturday when first-place finisher The Apache was disqualified to second for bumping Real Solution three times in the final 200 yards.

Ridden by Alan Garcia, Real Solution was on the outside of The Apache as they came down the stretch. The Apache was on the rail, but ended up about four lanes outside, bumping Real Solution three times in the process before The Apache, ridden by Christophe Soumillon, beat Real Solution to the wire by a head.
