Aqueduct: Mott, Clement on same side for Demoiselle


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Mott and trainer Christophe Clement usually square off against each other in graded turf stakes. Saturday, they’re opponents while playing for the same team in the Grade 2, $200,000 Demoiselle Stakes.

Mott will send out Wee Party while Clement will saddle Lady Cohiba – both owned by Live Oak Plantation – in the 1 1/8-mile race for 2-year-old fillies.
Both fillies are running back on short notice. Wee Party, a daughter of Indian Charlie, won a one-mile maiden race by a half-length here on Nov. 10. Lady Cohiba, a daughter of Broken Vow, has won both of her starts, including the May Night Stakes, an off-the-turf race, run here on Nov. 16. In fact, Lady Cohiba would be making her third start in six weeks. Clement also will saddle Indyniable, a daughter of A.P. Indy owned by Lakland Farm and Darrell Brown.

Like the Remsen, there is no standout in the Demoiselle. Lady Cohiba and Awalkinthemoonlite are the only stakes winners in the field, which also includes Captivating Lass, Brown Eyed Nance, Wildcat’s Smile, Bourbonstreetgirl, Dreaming of Cara, and Disposablepleasure.
