GiveTheMan a Cigar breezed on Tuesday working 4 furlongs in 50.90 over the Saratoga training track. That work was 10th best out of 13 at the distance.

We spoke with assistant trainer Manny Gonzalez after the breeze. Manny said, “He worked well. He’s doing very good. We’re hoping to get him into a race next week.”
