Awesome. I probably would have played a $2 win ticket on Cigar as a momento of witnessing history. Then crumpled it after watching the race.

In fact, every fan should tip his cap to Caixa Electronica, who just wants to beat you, anywhere from six to nine furlongs and the stops in between.

In winning the G3 Fall Highweight Handicap beneath 133 pounds and Javier Castellano, he improved his lifetime mark to (60) 19-8-11.

What’s wrong with that stat? In this day and age, horses are not supposed to run 60 races, most often in top company, even as a 7 year-old.
