Cigar Street to Sandringham Farm in Kentucky for 2016


Grade 3 winner Cigar Street has been purchased by Thomas J. Young and will make his debut at stud in 2016 at Young’s Sandringham Farm in Georgetown, Ky.

The 6-year-old son of Street Sense won five of nine career starts for earnings of $283,908, highlighted by victories in the Grade 3 Skip Away Stakes and the non-graded Homecoming Classic Stakes. He has not raced since the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Classic.

Cigar Street was trained by Bill Mott for owners Jake Ballis and Rashard Lewis.

"Cigar Street is nice looking individual," said Trish Regard, manager of Sandringham Farm. "He stands nearly 17 hands and is remarkably well-balanced. We have high hopes for Cigar Street."

Bred in Kentucky by Marvin Delfiner, Ted Folkerth and Brookdale, Cigar Street is out of the unraced Deputy Minister mare Arcadiana, who is a half sister to Hall of Famer Cigar. He is one of five winners from as many foals to race out of the mare, and hails from the family of Grade 3 winner Laura’s Lucky Boy, Grade 2-placed stakes winner Rock Me Baby, and Puerto Rican champion Mulca.
