It is a great Thanksgiving weekend of racing action at Aqueduct with a total of six stakes races, beginning with the Fall Highweight Handicap on Thursday. Here is a look at that race on Thanksgiving Day and the other five stakes races this weekend at Aqueduct
The top race this weekend at Hollywood Park is the $250,000 Hollywood Turf Cup on Saturday. A field of seven is expected, headlined by Sanagas and Bourbon Bay. The Hollywood Turf Cup will be the eighth race on a nine-race card.
Delta Downs' richest and most important race day of the year. It's the $1,000,000 Delta Downs Jackpot program, and it takes place this Saturday, November 19. Many of the connections that will take part in the main event, which features 2-year-olds vying for a massive first-place paycheck of $600,000 in graded earnings, are making final travel arrangements to get to Vinton, Louisiana for the 1 1/16-mile showdown.
As Many of you may have heard, Aqueduct Racetrack has opened New York's first "racino." A racino is a combination of racetrack and a casino with video slot machines. The new form of gaming is expected to bring millions in additional revenue to The New York Racing Association (NYRA), and the state of New York as a whole. Aqueduct's racino is called "Resorts World Casino New York," and has 4,525 video slot machines, with 475 electronic games, including table games. These are just the first amounts, as Resorts World plans on adding thousands more.
Las Vegas, NV -- The last graded turf race of the year in New York takes place on Saturday afternoon with Emerald Beech and Mekong Melody expected to fight it out in the Long Island Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack. A field of eight is set for Saturday's 55th running of the $150,000 contest.
Las Vegas, NV -- This past weekend's Breeders' Cup at Churchill Downs saw numerous long-shot upsets. While every Breeders' Cup has its long-shot winners, this year's Cup had more than usual which resulted in some huge payouts. Many handicappers are also lamenting the fact that there were clear indications in the past performances and recent workouts that pointed toward these big upset winners. Let's break down the available information that could have helped steer us toward the winning long shots.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (November 6, 2011)- Hollywood Park will begin its 31st Autumn Meet Thursday, Nov. 10. Post time is 12:30 p.m. Scheduled for 26 days through Dec. 18, the meet is highlighted by five Grade I stakes race events and the annual Autumn Turf Festival (Nov. 25-27).
Will Saturday be a day for some of Europe's best horses to win in Breeders' Cup betting? Between Friday and Saturday, a total of 28 foreign-based horses will be running in this year's Breeders' Cup. That number is lower than two years ago when a record 34 foreign horses made the trip to Santa Anita. Two years ago it was a gold rush for foreign horses as they won six of the 14 races. In 2008 they won five races. Could this year be another great year for Europe's best? Trainer Aidan O'Brien will try and do a little better as he is sending 11 horses this year. He has sent 63 starters in the past and won just four times. Let's look at the top European horses for Saturday's races.
