QR: NO DECISION YET ON CIGAR MILE

According to Spring Hill Farm manger Chris Baker, Viriginia-bred Quality Road will be watching the weather map. The Florida-Derby winner’s connections will make a decision on Thursday whether or not to enter for Saturday’s Cigar Mile Gr.I at Aqueduct and the weather may have an impact.

Quality Road, who to date has been a rainmaker of sorts, would surely like to see a dry fast track having seen his share of rain, slop and mud in the Travers and Jockey Club Gold Cup. But, according to weather.com, the forecast for Friday at the Big A calls for a 70% chance of rain while Saturday is predicted to be cloudy and windy.

We will keep you posted as we learn more.
