8th Winner For Sire Big Brown

Monday, 8th October 2012

Coolmore's US$1.3 million 2YO purchase at the 2012 Fasig-Tipton Florida Breeze Up Sale, the colt Darwin (Big Brown-Cool Ghoul) became winner number 8 for his Vinery shuttle sire Big Brown (Boundary-Mien, by Nureyev). Sent off at cramped odds in the red, the big striding colt scored on debut by 2-lengths at Belmont for trainer Todd Pletcher. A half-brother to multiple stakes-winner Dangabit, Darwin was originally a US$220,000 purchase at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale. Big Brown is missing this year's southern hemisphere season due to sustaining a minor injury which precluded him from travelling.
