There's is no bigger dance in the Fall at the Big A than the Grade 1 Cigar Mile, won by some very, very serious racehorses, including its namesake.

We believe that the filly Groupie Doll (8-5) fits that mold and she'll prove to be a great one at middle distances. One mile around a single turn, having drawn outside in a relatively small field, will never afford a better opportunity to prove she is a very special individual indeed.

Leading with our head and our heart, too, taking Groupie Doll to win with no price restrictions, although her early line odds seem equitable. We'll laso take her to key exotics with Stay Thirsty (7-2), Buffum (6-1) and Hymn Book (6-1).
