ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - Real Solution won the Arlington Million on Saturday when first-place finisher The Apache was disqualified to second for bumping Real Solution 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 in the process before The Apache, ridden by Christophe Soumillon, beat Real Solution to the wire by a head.

Garcia and trainer Chad Brown filed an objection, and after 6 minutes, the objection was upheld.

``At the top of the stretch I had plenty of horse to go by, and the other horse bumped us more than four times,'' Garcia said. ``Made me lose my momentum. If that didn't happen we might have won by two or three lengths.''

Soumillon blamed the move to the right on the giant video screen close to the finish line.

``We were the better horse, but he got scared by the screen and shifted out,'' Soumillon said. ``My horse was on the lead and got a little unbalanced. The screen scared him, but we were the best horse.''

The 4-year-old Real Solution ran 1 1/4 miles on the turf in 2:00.99 and paid $18.80, $8.60 and $6.20. The Apache returned $7.80 and $5.60, and Side Glance paid $12.20 to show.

Real Solution won for the first time in the U.S. after a pair of top-four finishes. He also has won in Italy.

Ken Ramsey, Real Solution's owner, went from disappointed to delighted.

``I thought we lost the race,'' Ramsey said. ``Then I heard he was bumped. I was eager to see the head-on. We had the momentum and he was pushing us out.''

Real Solution was ninth with a quarter-mile to go, but found room between horses to jump to sixth at the top of the stretch and charged through the field, catching everyone but The Apache.

The Apache had run fifth through the middle of the race, but saved ground on the rail on Arlington's sweeping turn and took the lead at the top of the stretch.

Also, Admiral Kitten charged from the middle of the pack to run down Stormy Len and Jack Milton in the Secretariat. Ridden by Rosie Napravnik, Admiral Kitten ran third in the early going, was passed, then pushed hard in the final quarter mile and passed both Stormy Len and Jack Milton to win by 1 1/4 lengths.

Dank, going off at 3-1, overhauled four horses in the final furlong to take the Beverly D. for Dank, a 4-year-old with Ryan L. Moore up, beat Ireland's Gifted Girl to the wire by 4 1/4 lengths.

Dandino, a 6-year-old also ridden by Moore won the American St. Leger.
