Picks and Ponderings: Friday’s stakes highlights

As a continuation of Picks and Ponderings’s Thanksgiving Handicapping Feast, Paul and I delved into three more races for Friday.  Continuing the theme, he went west and I went east: be took on the Seabiscuit Handicap (GII) at Del Mar, and I looked at both the Clark Handicap (GI) at Churchill Downs as well as the Go For Wand Handicap (GIII) at Aqueduct.  Across the three races, there’s a little bit of everything: an Illinois-bred turf star, a former Illinois Derby winner, no shortage of three-year-olds taking on the older set, and some contentious betting races.

Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, take a look at our previews, and let us know in the comments what you think!
