Ocala Stud’s The Big Beast, the Grade 1 winner and leading sprinter, sired his first reported foal on Jan. 3rd when a colt was born in Ocala, FL.
Bred by Christy Whitman, the bay colt is out of the Slew Gin Fizz mare Look to the Stars, a half-sister to multiple Graded stakes-winning millionaire Isitingood.
The Big Beast was a Grade 1-winning 3-year-old and top sprinter on the track. He scored his biggest career victory in the King’s Bishop S. (G1) at Saratoga, before returning as a 4-year-old to be a narrow runner-up in the Vanderbilt H. (G1) at Saratoga, losing a head-bobbing photo finish to Rock Fall.
By former Florida champion freshman sire Yes It’s True, The Big Beast is out of the stakes-placed Deputy Minister mare, V V S Flawless. He bred 103 mares in his first book in 2016, and is set to stand his second season for a fee of $6,000 S&N.
