Even though we have to wait another year for another Triple Crown winner, Big Brown is still a beast. Kent Desormeaux, the jockey riding Big Brown, tried to get the horse to make a move, but the horse didn’t have much left in him. Desormeaux did the smart thing by pulling up on him and saving him from getting injured. The owners of Big Brown will be making tons of money off of him when they put him out to stud. They didn’t want the horse to get injured and risk the future stud fees. He ended up finishing 9th, which is last, but won’t be remembered for this race. Da’Tara, who was a 38-1 odd favorite, picked up the victory and made a few people rich.
Big Brown had an amazing Kentucky Derby and Preakness, he will go down as one of the best horses over the last 30 years. I doubt that they will have him run in the Breeder’s Cup, another sub-par finish could hurt him.
I think I need to be put out to stud, I probably wouldn’t charge much.
