El Segundo's baby brother The Big Sur has maiden win
Jun 18, 2017
The Big Sur, a colt by Redwood, broke through for his maiden win at Sale. He is the baby brother of Colin's GP1 Champion El Segundo and the last foal by Oak Ridge mare Palos Verde, having being foaled in 2013 when she was aged 22 so a miracle baby. He has grown to be a big boy and a late bloomer but through Colin's patient training is finally learning to win. The view of winning jockey Daniel Stackhouse was “He’s still got a lot to learn and when he went inside the leaders, he was a bit timid because he’s such a big horse, but once he did, he went through his gears pretty good and it was a nice win. He’s going the right way about things and he should keep improving"
