A public memorial service for Thoroughbred champion Cigar will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park on Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. The service will be held at the park’s Hall of Champions near Cigar’s gravesite and the paddock he occupied for most of the 15 years he lived at the park.

Cigar died Oct. 7 at age 24 due to complications following surgery for severe osteoarthritis in his neck.

Kentucky’s First Lady Jane Beshear will pay tribute to the Hall of Fame horse and longtime visitor favorite at the Hall of Champions. Fans are welcome to bid a final farewell to the horse known as the “incomparable, invincible, unbeatable Cigar.”

The public is invited to attend the memorial service, which is included with park admission. Guests arriving only for the memorial service after 1:30 p.m. will not be charged admission
