Upcoming Stakes for November 22 – 28

The week of Thanksgiving 2018 is chock full of graded contests from coast-to-coast.

Thanksgiving Day itself features four, the Falls City Handicap (G2) at Churchill Downs and Fall Highweight Handicap (G3) at Aqueduct among them. One day later, Churchill is back in the spotlight hosting the Clark Handicap (G1) and Mrs. Revere Stakes (G2). On November 24, seven graded events take place, including the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (G2) and Golden Rod Stakes (G2) under the Twin Spires. The two juvenile tests are points races for next year’s Kentucky Derby (G1) and Kentucky Oaks (G1), respectively.

Del Mar wraps up the busy weekend on November 25 with a pair of graded affairs — the Cecil B. DeMille Stakes (G3) and Native Diver Stakes (G3).
