As promised here are the Daily Racing Blog top 4 picks in the four Graded Stakes races at Aqueduct Park Saturday December 1st. And remember we are always searching for Value.
First up is the running of the Demoisel in the 4th race. It is a Grade 2 Stakes Race, run at a mile & 1/8 on the dirt track, with a purse of $250,000. #6 AFLEET DESTINY ML 15-1. #3 FILLY JOEL ML 7-2. #7 MOLTO BELLA ML 3-1. #1 ENLIVEN ML 6-5.

The eighth is the Grade 2 Remsen. This race is an early Kentucky Derby prep race, with the winner earning ten points toward the next Run For The Roses. It is run at a mile & 1/8 over the dirt, with prize money of $250,000. #7 TAX ML 15-1. #3 BOURBON WAR ML 5-1. #1 JUNGLE WARRIOR ML 8-1. #5 NETWORK EFFECT ML 6-5

That is 1.5 million dollars in prize money for those races alone. Not too shabby for December racing in New York. If some of the DRB choices come through, we hope to get a little slice of that cake for ourselves. Best of luck.
