The Cigar Mile is the final Grade 1 race of the NYRA circuit.  This years edition once again has a purse of $750,000, which has drawn out some of the top horses in world including Mendelssohn who will head into the race as a 2/1 favorite.

The race is set to take place this Saturday at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York City.  The Cigar Mile is the second last race of the day with a post time of 3:45pm EST.

In this article I will provide the morning line odds for the 2018 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.

2018 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.

  1. Mendelssohn 2-1
  2. Sunny Ridge 9-2
  3. Pat On the Back 15-1
  4. Stan the Man 30-1
  5. Copper Town 5-2
  6. True Timber 12-1
  7. Timeline 10-1
  8. Patternrecognition 7-2

Mendelssohn comes into the race as the favorite at odds of 2-1, even though he drew the post position.

Copper Town, Patternrecognition and Sunny Ridge are the other three horses being given a good chance at getting the win in New York City this Saturday.

My Pick

I’m not going to be picking Mendelssohn to win this race.  The post position is not a good draw for this horse and he hasn’t won a race in his last 5 runnings.  Yes, he was racing against much better competition than the other horses in this race, but I like picking horses who are used to crossing the finish line first.

I like Patternrecognition at odds of 7/2.  This horse won his last two races, including putting up a nice performance at the Kelso Handicap-G2 in September where he beat Sunny Ridge at this exact distance of 1 mile.

Play: Pattern Recognition 7/2
