Lucky Pulpit’s Last Foal

Coalinga, CA (February 3, 2018)-Lucky Pulpit’s last and only foal of 2018 arrived at 8:35 p.m. on January 31 at John Harris’ Harris Farm near Coalinga CA. The plain bay colt is out of Mother Luck (Street Sense x Alishir’s World). His dam is a half-sister to multiple stakes winner and G1 stakes placed Antares World. The unnamed colt was bred by his owners Mr. and Mrs. Larry D. Williams’ Tree Top Ranch, who also owned his sire.

Lucky Pulpit is most noted as the sire of multiple Eclipse winning and two-time Horse of the Year winner California Chrome ($14,752,650). Lucky Pulpit entered stud in 2007 and stood his entire career at Harris Farms. He was California’s Leading Freshman Sire of 2010 and topped the California General Sire List in 2014 and 2016. In 2017, Lucky Pulpit was the Leading Sire of California Conceived Foals by number of winners and of two-year-olds by earnings.

Mr. Big To Stand at Harris Farms

Coalinga,CA (October 18, 2017)-Mr. Big, sire of Grade 3 Transylvania Stakes winner Big Score, will move to John Harris’ Farm near Coalinga, CA for the 2018 breeding season. Owned and campaigned by George Krikorian, the son of Dynaformer is out of the stakes winning G2 placed Fappiano mare, Fashion Delight. Mr. Big’s first two dams are both stakes winners and stakes producers.

From only 16 foals of racing age, Mr. Big has sired eight winners with combined earnings of $1,228,097 for average earnings per starter of $122,810. Five of his runners are six digit earners. He is represented by G3 Transylvania Stakes and Zuma Beach S. winner Big Score ($436,300) and Torrey Pines S. G3 runner-up, Big Book.

John Harris said “I am delighted to stand this very nice stallion at Harris Farms. He has sired several top horses already, and his best crops will run in the next few years. I have always liked to see Turn To on a stallion page, as well as Roberto and like stallions from those lines. He is a nice outcross for many California mares. He is a nicely conformed horse and he can get a “big” horse. Another son of Dynaformer, Temple City, is doing fantastically with just a few crops racing.”

Mr. Big will stand in 2018 for the fee of $6,500.
