An extrodinary bay colt who has won the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and may very well be the first horse since Affirmed to win the Triple Crown. He has a perfect record, winning every race in which he has started by at least 4 3/4 lengths. Big Brown is ridden by Kent Desormeaux, trained by Rick Dutrow, and owned by IEAH Stables and Paul Pompa. He is sired by Boundary and out of Mien.
Big Brown is a great racehorse.

One of a horse's gaits. It has three beats and is considered a controlled gallop. It is the next fastet gait from a trot. The leg that leads and is extened farthest is the lead that the horse is on. It is important that the horse is using the correct lead - in an arena, the horse should be on the inside lead.
The canter is my favorite gait.
