What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about the Comely...

This Saturday at The Big A has the makings of a spectacular afternoon. We have some awesome graded stakes action, and for me personally, it will mark a couple of firsts. It will be my inaugural trip to Aqueduct and also my first time on scene as a member of the HRN team. I am thrilled about both and...Read More

  • AndyScoggin · It super chalked out. We hit, but lost money. Even with Flat Out winning the cigar mile, but favorites from Pletcher/Repole and Jacobson will sure drive down the price. · 138 days ago ·

This Saturday at Aqueduct we are in for a real treat. We have a quad of very nice stakes races on tap, highlighted by the absolutely stacked Grade 1 Cigar Mile. The 2 year old fillies and colts will also be on display in a pair of Grade 2’s in The Demoiselle and The Remsen. Add in the Grade 3 Comely...Read More

  • BenjaminGay · Forty Tales? I don't think so but this is horse racing and to be fair I'm not sure who to play in this one. I'm gonna go Goldencents and Groupie Doll but I'm pulling for the Doll to win it. I just think it may be a little too far for her. · 139 days ago ·

One year ago on Cigar Mile Day at Aqueduct Racetrack, Kiaran McLaughlin saddled favored Dance Card to a four-length victory in the Grade 1 Gazelle to close out her 3-year-old campaign. On Saturday, the trainer is hoping another sophomore filly can bring home a stakes win on the Cigar Mile undercard ...Read More
Oh man, my girl Groupie Doll is joining the Cigar Mile party. With Goldencents already in, Honor Code Remsen bound, and the Demoiselle and Comely also on the day’s festivities, I can’t help but think that I need to be on any plane or train headed to the Big A on November 30. Or maybe it’s time for a...Read More

  • RyanBrady · Sunrise Smarty is my pick in this race, because he is not "The Highweight", and his early speed on the Aqueduct racetrack (Main or Inner) is as dangerous as they come. If Todd Pletcher leaves one of his in the race rather than opting for The Grade 1 Cigar Mile on Saturday then they will be the ones to beat on paper. One of the nicer editions of this race in recent years. · 876 days ago ·
