2012 GI Gazelle Stakes is for the 3yo ladies on Aqueduct’s Saturday Holiday fest card – Posts, Picks, Free PP’s, M/L Odds

If you’ve had your fill of giblets, stuffing, turkey, pumpkin pie and Black Friday bargain hunting, well Aqueduct is running their annual multiple Grade Stakes Holiday Fest card this Saturday that includes the $350,000, GI Gazelle Stakes for the 3yo ladies, going 1 1/8 mile over the Aqueduct main!

Free Past Performances,

Dance Card , comes in as the 9/5 m/l fav off a win in the Belle Cherie Stakes last out clicking off a good 1:41 flat and winning by over 7 lengths. This 3yo filly has never missed the board in 4 career starts but will be facing g/s competition for the first time here.

Book Review , comes up as the 2/1 2nd choice this Saturday. This 3yo filly was one of the Saratoga buzz horses this summer until a 7th place finish in the GI Test quieted down all the buzz. She returned to her winning way in the $400,000 Charles Town Oaks 2 back and won the Imperial Gesture Stakes at Belmont last out!

My Wandy’s Girl , at 3/1 does a quick turn around here after winning the Pentelis  Stakes here at Aqueduct on Nov 15th. This 3yo lady is a Caribbean import from Puerto Rico’s Camarero Racetrack where she was considered the Zenyatta of old San Juan!

Jemima’s Pearl , at 8/1 does bring some much needed graded stakes gratis to this GI tilt with runs in the GIII Monmouth Oaks, GII Fantasy Stakes and GI Kentucky Oaks this season!
