“Cigar remains the standard for greatness among Thoroughbred racehorses of the past quarter-century. He attracted massive crowds from Boston to Los Angeles, including untold numbers of new fans mesmerized by his immense power and unmatched consistency. Not since the Triple Crown years of the 1970s have we seen such a talent.”
