LEADING North American agency, The Stallion Company says it is ‘business as usual’ for Big Brown after acquiring a several shares in the boom stallion this week.
The Stallion Company, along with Three Chimneys Farm where Big Brown stands while on northern hemisphere duties, were able to secure 11 shares in the Kentucky Derby/Preakness winner from IEAH Stables at a time when the young gun’s stocks are soaring.
“He’s a unique horse that has bred more mares every year he’s been to stud, which is indicative of really good foals,” The Stallion Company’s Jamie LaMonica said.
“We’ve gotten great feedback from trainers and think the best is yet to come. So we thought it was a good opportunity to increase the position on the horse.”
LaMonica said it was business as usual for Big Brown who is expected to continue shuttling to Vinery Stud at Scone once his northern hemisphere commitments are met.
“It was 11 shares. IEAH needed to make a sale; we thought that the horse was doing well. It consolidates ownership a little bit, and allows them to have a firmer control of the direction in which he will go,” LaMonica said of the purchase.
Big Brown’s first crop hit the racetrack last year and was led by turf stakes winner Brown Almighty, who is Grade 3-placed. Big Brown is the sire of U.S bred juvenile winners across America, Europe and Japan. Last March, Big Brown’s son out of the mare Cool Ghoul topped Fasig-Tipton Florida’s select juvenile sale when Coolmore went to $1.3 million for him.
