From Same Sire, Same Family as G1 Winner Army Mule

Army Brass

  • Brute of a Colt From the Same Sire and Same Female Family as Unbeaten G1 Winner

  • By A Louisiana Derby Winner Who Went Favored in the Kentucky Derby

  • Nice Perks Available For Colt Bred in Maryland and Certified in Delaware

In 2016, a Friesan Fire colt created a stir at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic, commanding $825,000, the second highest price in the entire sale. And he was well worth it: named Army Mule, he went on to win New York’s Grade 1 Carter Handicap in his third career start, posting a 114 Beyer Speed Figure. He now stands at stud in Kentucky. This spring at Midlantic, West Point landed on another Friesan Fire colt, and he happens to be closely related to Army Mule— his dam and Army Mule are half siblings. Named Army Brass, this bay colt is built like a throwback, strong and sturdy with legs like tree trunks. And he looks plenty fast: an imposing individual on the shank with a smooth, fluid walk, he worked an eighth of a mile at the sale in 10.1 with an above average stride length. Now with trainer Cherie DeVaux in Kentucky, he will have a license to travel: he was bred in Maryland, which makes him eligible for purse incentives and special stakes at Laurel and Pimlico, and the same goes for Delaware Park: because he was raised at a farm in the state of Delaware, he is Delaware-certified—he can run for purse enhancements there as well as exclusive maiden and stakes races. Cherie is enjoying a breakout season, having already surpassed her previous annual highs in stable earnings and wins, humming along at an 18 percent win clip. Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2022. Breezing on the inside at Keeneland:
