The G1 $500,000 Cigar Mile Saturday at Aqueduct features a sharp field of 11 runners. Clearly Now and Forty Tales are the one-two finishers in the G3 Bold Ruler at 7 furlongs at Belmont; they are both in good form and should be respected.

There is a lot happening at Horse Racing Simulation. As I said back in July, though we’re getting hundreds of new registrations per day, most people walk away from the game because they don’t want to install the Unity plug-in.
