Saturday's Cigar Mile Day card will be bolstered by a mandatory payout in the Empire 6 at the Big A.

The Empire 6 will start with Race 5, a one-mile maiden event for 2-year-olds, with an approximate post time of 1:35 p.m. Eastern.

The highlight of the Aqueduct fall meet, Saturday's 10-race card features four graded stakes worth $1.5 million in purses highlighted by the Grade 1, $750,000 Cigar Mile slated for the card's for finale.

The Cigar Mile, featuring multiple Grade 1-winner Maximum Security and Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile victor Spun to Run, will be joined by the Grade 3, $250,000 Go For Wand in Race 6, the Grade 2, $250,000 Demoiselle in Race 8, and Grade 2, $250,000 Remsen in Race 9, each included in the Empire 6 sequence.

The Empire 6 requires the bettor to select the first-place finisher of the final six races of the card. On non-mandatory payout days, if one unique ticket exists, then 100% of the net pool, plus the jackpot carryover if applicable, will be paid to the winner. If there is no unique wager selecting the first-place finisher in all six races, then 75% of the day's net pool will be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of races. The remainder will be added into the jackpot and carried to the next day's Empire 6.

The Empire 6 jackpot entering Friday's card at Aqueduct stood at $544,158. Wagering on the Empire 6 is available on-track and on all wagering platforms including NYRA Bets.
