Cigar Mile Handicap

The Cigar Mile Handicap is an American race for thoroughbred horses at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York. Run annually in late November, it is named in honor of the U.S. Hall of Fame horse Cigar, who won the race in 1994 when it was known as the NYRA Mile. Renamed in 1997 following Cigar's retirement, the Grade I race is for three-year olds and up under handicap weight conditions. It is run at the distance of one mile on the dirt. In 2005, Hill 'n' Dale Farms of Lexington, Kentucky became the race's title sponsor.

There was no race held in 1993.
