Vinery Excited About Big Brown
Monday, 21 June 2010:
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner will soon leave his Kentucky home at the famous Three Chimneys where a large number of his foals currently reside.
Big Brown offspring have arrived at leading stud farms all over North America, including the famous Three Chimney's Farm in Kentucky.
Vinery Stud general manager Peter Orton visited Three Chimneys to ink the deal for Big Brown's shuttle to Scone.
"Big Brown exceeded my expectations on conformation and his suitability to the Australasian style of racehorse," Orton said.
"He stands just on 16.1 hands, possesses a particularly kind temperament and handles himself in the covering barn like a real professional.
"The most pleasing aspect for the future of this stallion is the quality of his first foals that I saw while I was in Kentucky.
"They are all strong compact types with good strong shoulders and powerful hindquarters, typical of the Danzig line progeny we see here that are so successful in our conditions."
