Three Chimneys Farm announced Jan. 22 that Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands and Preakness Stakes (both gr. I) winner Big Brown was represented by his first foal, a filly out of the unraced Seeking the Gold mare Impressive Attire. The filly, who is boarded at Swifty Farms near Seymour, Ind., was born Jan. 12.
Impressive Attire is out of the multiple grade I-winning millionaire mare Sharp Cat. By Storm Cat, Sharp Cat captured 14 stakes races, 12 of which were graded, including the grade I Hollywood Starlet, Matron, Santa Anita Oaks, Las Virgenes, Acorn, Beldame, and Ruffian. Impressive Attire, who was bred in Kentucky by Darley, is also from the family of grade I-winning millionaire Royal Anthem (by Theatrical).
The Big Brown filly is Impressive Attire’s first foal.
