Mr. Big relocated to E.A. Ranches in California


Mr. Big, a winning son of Dynaformer, will relocate to E.A. Ranches in Ramona, Calif., for the 2016 breeding season, where he will stand for a fee to be announced at a later date.

The 12-year-old previously stood at Starwood Farm in Versailles, Ky., for an advertised fee of $2,000.

Mr. Big has been lightly used at stud, with 11 foals of racing age spanning three crops. His three winners from five foals to race include Big Book, winner of the Fleet Treat Stakes at Del Mar, and Big Break, a three-time winner and earner of $112,834.

Mr. Big won 2 of 9 starts during his on-track career for earnings of $70,920, never racing at a distance less than a mile.

Bred in Kentucky by Mike Akers, Randy Zeller, Theresa Levy, and Jeff Bowen, Mr. Big is out of the Grade 2-placed stakes-winning Fappiano mare Fashion Delight, whose eight winners from nine foals to race include Grade 3 winner Magnificience, who sold for $1 million as a broodmare prospect at the 2008 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky selected fall mixed sale.

His extended family includes English classic winner Casual Look, Italian classic winner Fashion Statement, Grade 1 winner Charleston Rag, and Grade 2-placed American Style.

Mr. Big joins Anziyan Royalty, Chattahoochee War, Salute the Sarge, and Uh Oh Bango on the E.A. Ranches stallion roster.
