Fee decreased to $10,000.
I mentioned this horse earlier on a different thread,i was always a fan. Thought he was one of the morre dominant 3yos' of this Century,due to his not so popular connections(including Richard Dutrow) this star never received his full credit in the history of racing.My curiosity got the better of me.I went back and reviewed his stellar 3yo carreer. He won the G1 Florida Derby, he won the G1s' Kentucky Derby and the Preakness(let me clarify that) He dominated the first 2 legs of the Triple Crown. He had a baf experience in the Belmont Stakes.Yet he managed to come back and win the G1 Haskell. He closed out his career with the Monmouth Handicap. After reading these incredible feats,it came to me that Brown was never named Horse of the Year. So i wondered,what Superstar had such an amazing year that trumped these accomplishments.After all,many on this site thought that some 3yos' were worthy of HOTY honors based on 1 win each in the Triple Crown races . I found out that CURLIN was named HOTY. That there solidified and reinforced my beliefs that this vote is a Scam and nothing but a popularity contest most of the years. Curlins biggest win that year came in The Dubai Cup.If my geography is correct,Dubai is not located in North America.Thus the race should not of been credited to him by the voters.But hey,what the hell.We are only humans and this is a fan favorite. Ilearned that his 2 most prominent races won that year ,were the Woodward and the JCGC. In the Breeders Cup Classic he finished 4th. In his defense it was run over the S.A. carpet. Probably never liked it. But you know what? He ran and lost.So i ask you,how can a 3yo dominate so much and win 4 G1 races and lose the vote to a horse who basically won 2 Graded Stakes in the U.S. that year. Like i said,never have or never will pay attention to these meaningless votes.

Horse Racing Fantasy developed by Horse Racing Simulation LLC at www.horseracegame.com/ gives us an opportunity to race some of history’s most famous horses, including Big Brown. In my opinion, this game also has amazing, realistic 3-D graphics providing a chance to experience the thrilling sport of horse racing in the virtual world. Perhaps, one of the best ‘features,’ in my opinion, is that even with the high quality 3-D graphics the game maintains low system requirements making it accessible to everyone, including those with weaker or older computers.
Watched the 134th running of the Kentucky Derby 2008 over and over. Hope that Garrett Gomez has the time to chat with Desormeaux. He got that horse up to 4th just after the first turn and made it look so easy.
Since we're talking a lot about sires lately, I thought you'd all be intersted in some of Vinery's Southern Hemisphere shuttle sires fees (Big Brown, Pluck, Congrats, More Than Ready...) http://www.thoroughbrednews.com.au/Spring-Racing/default.aspx?id=66088
Is there photos of colt by Big Brown and Stardom Bound?
  • travel_vic · you might get two images: prea nd psot steriod. You know that anabolic steriods make them sterile? Now how would that go over in the breeding shed? · 719 days ago
sales topping march fasig-tipton 2 y/o in training purchased by coolmore for $1.3 million (big brown x cool ghoul) has been named Darwin. Let's hope that the iconic name means he is an impressive prospect!
  • Armada · I like the name they chose. Much better than the one they tried before that was rejected. Hope Darwin does great things! · 726 days ago
His progeny is doing very well so far. They are 2 y/o's who are running long distances. And his progeny is doing great on turf and dirt. So far he is off to a fantastic start.
So glad to hear of him through Blood Horse. I loved him the first time I laid eyes on him.
First starter a winner. Nice.

  • notobsessed · Nice, Mary Z, very nice · 817 days ago
how is big brown this low?! He lost 1 race his whole career due and it was due to injury. Best horse I've ever seen race and only that injury keeps him from being in the talks of all time best.
