The juveniles were featured on the undercard on Cigar Mile day. Six 2-year-old colts and geldings went 1 1/8 miles on the main track in the $200,000 Remsen Stakes (G2). Iroquois Stakes winner Court Vision was sent off as the 4-5 favorite over Big Truck at 5-2, entering this event off a third place finish in the Sleepy Hollow. Continental Mile winner Atoned was the 5-1 third choice.

Tide Dancer was loose on the lead early, setting a pace of 24.33, 49.15, and 1:14.49 while as many as 2 lengths ahead of Springs Road. Court Vision raced close to the pace saving ground around both turns. The pacesetters both tired entering the stretch, as Atoned, who raced in 5th early, put in his bid 3 wide on the far turn and opened up a 3 length lead in mid stretch. However, Court Vision angled out wide entering the stretch and closed with a rush to get up by a neck in 1:52.48 over the fast track. It was a long 4 1/4 lengths back to Trust N Dustan in third. There was a brief inquiry into the stretch run, as Court Vision bumped fourth place finisher Big Truck and third place finisher Trust N Dustan while making his move for the lead, but the stewards allowed the result to stand.
