Security A Lock for Cigar Mile

Tuesday, 12th November 2019

In the US, champion colt Maximum Security (New Year's Day-Lil Indy, by Anasheed) will remain at Aqueduct for his next start in the Gr1 Cigar Mile (1600m) there on Dec 7, as opposed to contesting the Gr1 Clark (1800m) at Churchill Downs a week earlier. This route was confirmed to Horse Racing Nation by trainer Jason Servis on Sunday morning after trackwork, who gauged that not only did the 3YO suit the dirt there but also that Aqueduct was less of a trip from the Belmont trainers base - more suitable at this stage in his campaign. Set for a tilt at the Gr1 Pegasus World Cup (1800m) in January, connections of the multiple Gr1 winner are mindful of the colic scare that led to his scratching from the Gr1 Pennsylvania Derby earlier this year.
