On behalf of a client interested in her as a broodmare prospect, we recently negotiated the private purchase of Saratoga allowance winner Smile Big, a career earner of $263,419. Formerly a $105,00 2-year-old in-training purchase by renowned bloodstock agent Peter Bradley, Smile Big raced initially for Sol Kumin and trainer Chad Brown. From 28 career starts, she won five races and placed in eleven more.
Smile Big is a daughter of the Eclipse Champion Sprinter Big Drama, out of the Concerto mare Margaret Smile, and she was bred in Florida by George Steinbrenner’s Kinsman Farm. This is the female family of Graded winners Straight Man, Al’s Helen and Pure Precision.
