NYRA hosts its last big race card of the year on Saturday, December 1. The four-stakes menu is anchored by the Grade 1 Cigar Mile and also features the Grade 2 Go For Wand H. for the distaffers going a flat mile. A scan of the Betmix Angler handicapping software reveals that recency and consistency have been strong indicators in the 8-furlong graded races on the Aqueduct main track. The final formula reads: rank among the top 3 in Days Since Last Race along with showing first in In The Money %.
Of the 18 runners in this race type who've qualified, one third have found the winner's circle producing a very generous $68 flat win bet profit. Four more contenders have hit the board sparking very good place bet ($25.20) and show bet ($7.50) returns.
