Big Brown's Southern Hemisphere shuttle plans put on hold


Big Brown, the Three Chimneys stallion whose yearlings sold for an average of $82,712 at auction in 2011, will not shuttle to the Southern Hemisphere this year “due to a laceration to a hind leg” that became infected, Three Chimneys said. The infection was not serious, according to the farm, but “veterinary advice has recommended against shuttling the horse,” Three Chimneys said. Big Brown covered 140 mares during the Northern Hemisphere breeding season.
