The Cigar Mile is the final Grade 1 race of the NYRA circuit. This years edition has a purse of $750,000, which is enough to draw out some of the top horses in world including Independence Hall, Code of Honor and Ginobili. Independence Hall will head into the race as the 5-2 favorite.
The race is set to take place this Saturday at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York City. The Cigar Mile is race #10 on the card with an estimated post time of 4:13pm EST.
In this article I will provide the morning line odds for the 2021 Cigar Mile and also give you my top pick for the race. Further down the page I will outline a simple 3 step guide to getting your bets placed on the Cigar Mile this Saturday from the United States.
2021 Cigar Mile Odds
Here are the morning line odds and post positions for this years Cigar Mile. These odds will change throughout race day depending on the amount of money coming in on each horse.
- Following Sea 6-1
- Plainsman 15-1
- Americanrevolution 4-1
- Code of Honor 4-1
- Independence Hall 5-2
- Ginobili 7-2
- Olympiad 12-1
- Pipeline 15-1
Independence Hall comes into the race as the slight favorite with odds of 5-2, while Ginobili (7-2), Americanrevolution (4-1), and Code of Honor (4-1) are the other top contenders. It would be a surprise if one of these four horses does not win on Saturday.
I like either Americanrevolution or Ginobili to win the race on Saturday. I’m leaning towards Americanrevolution with the slightly longer odds, but I’ll likely take these two in a couple exacta plays as well.
Americanrevolution is a three year old colt that has shown a lot of speed in his short career. He’s won 4 of his last 5 races, and his times in these wins have been very fast. I think this horse is a winner and I expect him to be able to bring the speed necessary in order to win his first race of a mile distance on Saturday.
Ginobili will be tough to beat though, as he’s a specialist at the short distances. He finished second at the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile last month, which shows he’s fast and in form. Again, I think it will be a battle between Americanrevolution and Ginobili on Saturday, so I will bet accordingly.
Play: Americanrevolution 4-1
