Cigar is a 6-year-old, bay gelding, he is approx 15.3hh/16hh and has an elegant, handsome look. He was originally advertised in April but it was decided to give him one last try. He had a spell and came back to racing only to very clearly let everyone know he was over it. I was asked to find the perfect home for him, he has great sentimental value to his racing team, He last raced on 9 Dec 2023.

One of his trackwork riders said he is lovely to ride and works naturally in a frame. He is soft and responsive to the bit when ridden with a kind hand. He works well alongside other horses. She described him as loveable, a little quirky and thought he would make a really cool all-rounder.

I have treated him for a couple of years, he is nice to be around and communicates quietly but clearly. I think he would need a fairly confident, smaller rider who is gentle and a clear communicator to get the best out of him. I think he could excel in just about any field and like his trackwork rider, I see him as an all-rounder. He is a fairly compact horse with nice even muscling. He has a really good foundation of skills but only knows how to be a racehorse so you will need to be able to support him as he transitions to his new life. He is sound and to the best of my knowledge has had no major injuries. He is retiring because he just does not want to be a racehorse. He is good with other horses. This guy is very special to the stable so will only go to the best of homes. I feel he could be a good match for a confident teenager who has someone to guide them in the retraining process.
