A STUNNING colt by Vinery Stud sire Big Brown has become the first horse to sell for over $1 million in North America this season at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Select sale of 2YO’s held on Monday.
The bay colt out Cool Ghoul, topped the sale for a final figure of US$1.3m and was knocked down to Coolmore representative Demi O’Byrne.
The Big Brown colt was the talk of the sale after a dazzling one furlong breeze-up completed with ease in a slick time of :10.1s.
”He’s a very good looking horse and breezed very well,” O’Byrne said, ‘he’s got a lovely action.”
O’Byrne said the colt probably would be sent to Kentucky for a few weeks before his long-term plans are mapped out. VIEW BREEZE UP
