GiveTheMan a Cigar breezed on Thursday working 4 furlongs in 48.55 over the Belmont Park training track. That work was 16th best out of 44 at the distance.

We spoke with assistant trainer Manny Gonzalez after the breeze. Manny said, “He worked nicely. We’re hoping to have him ready for his next race at the end of the month.”
