Big Brass Bed is entered this Saturday in the first race at Gulfstream Park, an OC 25000n1x for $91,000US going 1 1/16 miles on the turf for her new connections.  One of her siblings will be coming to a sale close to you pretty soon as Esquirol Farms has acquired her dame, Precision Farming, who is in foal to Medaglio D’Oro’s son Higher Power.

Not a bad nick.

May not end up at a western Canadian Sale.

Stay tuned.

One of the biggest problems with young chefs is too much addition to the plate. You put cilantro and then tarragon and then olive oil and then walnut oil or whatever. It’s too much.
