Cigar!

Though His Winning Streak Ended at 16 Races, Cigar Remains the Very Model of the Modern Major Thoroughbred
John Lee
From the Print Edition:
Danny DeVito, Winter 96

(continued from page 8)

Two more races remained on Cigar's dance card: the $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park on Oct. 5 and the $4 million Breeder's Cup Classic at Woodbine in Toronto on Oct. 26. That should mark the end of his career as a racehorse and the start of his career as a stallion.

"I have a firm offer of $30 million from Japanese breeders for Cigar, but I'm not going to sell him. I think he belongs in America," Paulson says. "Thirty million will get you thinking, but I have a lot of beautiful ladies in my barn who would love to meet Cigar."

John Lee is a New York-based writer.
