Top Ten at Fasig-Tipton March Sale

Hip 149, Big Brown - Cool Ghoul colt, getting his whites scrubbed during a bath on the Wednesday before the breeze show.

Yesterday’s Fasig-Tipton sale of two-year-olds in training yielded a few big prices and was headed by a flashy, well-made colt by first-year sire Big Brown. The gorgeous bay out of Cool Ghoul (by Silver Ghost) is a half-brother to Listed stakes winner Dagnabit; a $220,000 yearling, he blossomed into a $1,300,000 juvenile.

A previous blog post had a photo of him as “a handsome Big Brown colt,” being hand-walked the day before the sale horses breezed in front of prospective buyers on March 23rd. You couldn’t walk by this horse without noticing him!
