Weekend Warrior for Nov. 28: Picks for Hawthorne Gold Cup, Golden Rod, Demoiselle


LOUISVILLE, Ky. – There is stakes action galore for horseplayers on Saturday, with 10 graded races, including two Grade 1s in the Cigar Mile at Aqueduct and the Hollywood Derby at Del Mar. Of all these graded stakes, it is the Grade 2 Hawthorne Gold Cup that has this handicapper most excited to bet. I see value on a locally based runner in a race where out-of-towners figure to garner the overwhelming share of mutuel support.
