Racing Dudes 2020 Cigar Mile Wagering Guide and Picks Presale

Owned by Phipps Stable and Claiborne Farm, Shug McGaughey’s Performer will face Grade 1 competition for the first time as part of a competitive nine-horse field in the $250,000 Cigar Mile Handicap for 3-year-olds and up on the main track at Aqueduct Racetrack.

“He’s training well. It has been a while since he ran, but he’ll be fit enough,” McGaughey said. “He’s been over that track before. He seems to be doing as well now as he’s ever done.”

This Inside Track to the Cigar Mile wagering guide gives you an inside look at the four stakes races running at Aqueduct on December 5, 2020, including the $250,000 Cigar Mile Handicap (G1) for 3-year-olds and up. The Cigar Mile is one of the country’s top dirt mile events each year, attracting both sprinters and distance horses.
