Cigar is another hugely successful race horse that wasn't raced as much when he was younger. He wasn't raced competitively at all as a 2 year old, and his "career" didn't take off until he was about 5 years old I believe.

Well, I'm against the general racing industry. Racing for fun is great, but the industry takes horses that are way too young, hypes them up on high-energy feeds, and races them until they are no longer of use, and then the horses are either sent to the slaughter house or adopted, the latter being more preferable, seeing as slaughtering is an awful way for any living thing to die.
