The Todd Fincher-trained Senor Buscador can win his second Grade 2 race of his career when he leaves the starting gate in the 2023 Cigar Mile on Saturday at Aqueduct Racecourse in Queens, N.Y. A 5-year-old son of Mineshaft, Senor Buscador has six wins in 15 career starts. He has been installed as the 7-2 morning-line favorite in the 2023 Cigar Mile odds. Everso Mischievous and Accretive are the co-second choices, at 4-1. Post time for the $500,000 race is 4:12 p.m. ET.
With several accomplished horses set to enter the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to see what Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir has to say before making any Cigar Mile picks.
A member of the Beyer Speed Figure-making team, Weir is a two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas. He has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014.
Last year, he was red-hot in the Triple Crown prep races, hitting the superfecta in the Blue Grass Stakes for $1,678 and exactas in the Fountain of Youth Stakes and Tampa Bay Derby. He also hit the 19-1 winner of the Man o' War Stakes, the trifecta in the Pegasus World Cup, the superfecta in the Met Mile and multiple Pick 4s.
In April of this year, he hit a Pick 4 at Gulfstream Park for $641, the exacta in the Florida Derby, a Pick 5 at Keeneland and the exacta in the Lexington Stakes. He smashed the trifecta in the Belmont Stakes for $532.96, and later in June, he crushed a Pick 4 at Belmont for $555. Those are just some of his scores this year.
Now, Weir has handicapped the 2023 Cigar Mile field, made his picks and constructed his bets.
One surprise: Weir is bullish on the chances of Dr Ardito, even though he is an 8-1 longshot. "Dr Ardito still needs to prove where he fits in open company, but he's a consistent 5-year-old and will be making his run late," Weir told SportsLine. Weir is including Dr Ardito prominently in his wagers.
Moreover, Weir is high on a double-digit longshot who is a "mystery horse." Weir is including this horse in his 2023 Cigar Mile bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY NEED to see his picks before locking in any of your own.
