We've dubbed him the "4 B's". BIG, BRAVE, BRILLIANT and BRED.
BRILLIANT because he levelled a quality field over 6 furlongs at Stakes level as a 2YO in class record time.
BRAVE because his racing career was severely compromised by a stress fracture suffered in the French Guineas at 3. It plagued him until the end of his 4YO career, yet under the tutelage of Mike de Kock and John McVeigh, BRAVE TIN SOLDIER came back to display not only his courage but his class at 5, winning 3 races in Dubai and the United States, including an "impossible-come-from-behind" victory in the Cliff Hanger Stakes (Gr 3) in the United States.
BIG and beautiful enough to command a $3million price tag as a foal.
And finally, BRED, because he's the son of the world's most expensive stallion of the modern era, out of a Mr Prospector own sister to one of the Kentucky Derby's most famous winners in history. For good measure, his second dam is by the legend Danzig, while his third dam is the daughter of the Dual American sire, Halo. They don't come much better than this. And then you have to see him walk, that would explain why YouTube was so quick to post his effort in the Cliff Hanger.
