** Dubai World Cup ** - In 1996, just a stake, but in 1998, in only it's third running, the Dubai World Cup was given Grade 1 status, thanks to the participation of Cigar and other great horses!

*NYRA Mile Handicap-Gr. I* - The title of this race has resently been changed to "The Cigar Mile" in honor of, you guessed it -- CIGAR!!
