It’s easy to see why buyer’s in the United States continue to put their hands up for Big Brown’s progeny with his only two Saratoga Selected Yearling sale entries in New York selling for a combined total of $370,000.
The two typical Big Brown colts on offer were very well recieved and sold for $150k and $220k respectively and continue the impressive results for their first season sire.
Today’s results follow on from Big Brown’s triumphant Fasig Tipton July Yearling sale where was the leading first season sire by average in an unambiguous thumbs-up for his debut progeny.
”Big Brown’s weanlings sold very well last year which was an obvious pointer to what might happen at the yearling sales and that’s how it has turned out,” says Vinery Stud’s Adam White.
”Not only are they making good money in a tough climate but they are subject to genuine competition which shows that the stallion has broad appeal from owners, trainers and pin hookers who will no doubt be getting some of them ready to re-sell at the two-year-old ready-to-run sales which is big business in the US.’
Buyers will take a few days to regroup ahead of the Fasig Tipton Preferred Yearling sale which starts on Saturday where four more Big Brown’s yearlings will go under the hammer.
