Distaff turf stakes tops Aqueduct card on Saturday

By NY Hot List Staff | Friday, April 15, 2022

The warm weather in the New York area this week sent out a loud message that spring has indeed arrived. A similar message will be delivered at Aqueduct on Saturday when a grass race tops the card. The featured race is the $100,000 Plenty of Grace Stakes for older fillies and mares which will be contested on the turf at a mile distance and will serve as the 2022 debut for most of the field, which is filled with horses who have finished in the money in graded stakes.

Here’s the Hot List picks for the Plenty of Grace Stakes:
