This Saturday, New York racing will showcase some of racing’s best. And if you didn’t think that could get any better, add in the fact they will be running for an unprecedented $1.7 million dollars in purse money.

There will be four graded stakes on Saturday’s card, and they are a part of the “Win and You’re In” series for the Breeders’ Cup. You will be able to wager on: The Whitney, The Diana, The Go for Wand, and The Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap. All of the winners from these events will qualify for the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita on October 24-25.

The Saturday races will be televised on ABC from 4:00-6:00 p.m.

The best part about this day is that you can count on top quality runners, and there is always a price in the hunt. This will be a part of the $500,000 all-stakes Pick 4. So you will need to do your homework, and there is no better place to start than with So, arm yourself and make plans to be a part of this great day of racing action. You will be hearing from these runners in a couple of months. Get your glimpse this weekend.
