Strong September start for The Big Beast
Thursday, September 5, 2019
In the past six days First-Crop sire The Big Beast has already had a pair of maiden winners and the runner-up in the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante S. He now has a total of seven winners and is ranked second on the Florida Freshman Sires list.

Bad Little Beast broke his maiden Sept. 3 at Presque Isle Downs, rallying from off the pace to win the six-furlong maiden special weight affair by a length. The winner races for his breeder Gail Rice and is one of seven winners out of Sweep Machine, also the dam of stakes winner Drive Sandy Drive.

The latest maiden winner came Sept. 5 at Gulfstream Park, when Hear My Prayer rolled to a 4 1/4-victory going five furlongs on the turf. The bay filly set a quick pace and still drew away for an eye-catching win.

Hear My Prayer is owned by Cara Oliver and was bred in Florida by Janet Erwin. The filly's dam Additional Prayer won the J J'sdream S. as a 2-year-old.

Over the Labor Day weekend at Del Mar Inspiressa became The Big Beast's first stakes horse with a second-place effort in the $350,000 Debutante. The filly made headlines this past March when Ocala Stud consigned and sold her for $850,000 at the OBS 2-year-olds sale. She won her debut on Aug. 11 for Hronis Racing, West Point Thoroughbreds and William Sandbrook. 

Inspiressa is out of Lucky Trip, who has had seven foals to race, all winners.
