It features the connections of America's richest Thoroughbred, his jockey Jerry Bailey, his trainer Bill Mott and owner Allen Paulson. it also looks back at CITATION whose 16 straight victories from 1948-1950 is the modern record CIGAR is attempting to break for consecutive victories by an American-based horse with his 17th straight win. This is clearly one of the top sports stories of 1996 and certainly one of the biggest events ever in Thoroughbred racing.
