Some of the country's best dirt milers will square off Saturday in the 2021 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, N.Y. The Todd Pletcher-trained Americanrevolution has been installed as the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the 2021 Cigar Mile odds. Independence Hall and Ginobili are the co-second choices in the eight-horse 2021 Cigar Mile field. Post time for the one-turn race is 4:13 p.m. ET. 

Before you make any Cigar Mile 2021 picks or bets, you NEED to see the latest picks from racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir. 

A Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker, Weir has studied the race and constructed his wagers in his analysis below. A two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas, Weir has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014. This year, he has been on fire. He hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes, Blue Grass Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes. Anyone who has followed him is WAY UP.

Now, Weir has handicapped the Cigar Mile 2021 field, made his picks and constructed his bets.

One surprise: Weir is mostly fading Ginobili, even though he is the co-second choice on the morning line, at 7-2. "I suspect Ginobili will get bet down from this morning line, and I'm willing to stand against him on top in these new surroundings," Weir told SportsLine.

Weir's top pick is an "in-form horse." He also is high on a double-digit long shot whose trainer just made "an aggressive move." Weir is including these horses in his 2021 Cigar Mile bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own!
