Cigar is my favorite racehorse. He raced from 1992-1997. He tied Citations record of 16 consecutive wins. Last one fittingly being Citation Challenge. Also up until Curlin Cigar was the richest racehorse in the world earning just shy of 10million dollars during his career.

Not the prettiest of horse but of course, he was what he was...
Cruise Missile, my horse's grandsire
Cruise Missile by Bend A Bow was described by Time Form as "Big, good looking horse with an abundance of bone" . He won 9 races (6 over fences and 3 over hurdles) and was placed 16 times before he retired to stud sound. He was ranked 8th in 1998 on the BHDB event sire rankings for eventing progeny winnings and was the sire of numerous advanced event horses: Ben Slioch, Colonel Mellish, Cruisway, Kinsey Control, Much The Best, Booze Cruise and Best By Miles. Showjumpers, Dressage horses and county standard show horses. He has also bred many racehorses including 15 separate winning horses including Black Type winner Smitton Lane, Miss Majis and Another Cruise.
I always refer to TBs as uncle or aunty as they are from the same lines as my horse (anglo arab)
Anyway, the greatest race horse of all time is Great Uncle Mill Reef (willies actual great uncle)
