Big World to Sell at Fasig-Tipton November

Maggi Moss will offer this year’s GI La Troienne S. winner Big World (Custom for Carlos–Tensas Wedding Joy, by Broken Vow) at the upcoming Fasig-Tipton November Sale through the Bluewater Sales consignment. The 4-year-old Louisiana bred filly, a five-time stakes winner, captured the 2015 GIII Tempted S. as a 2-year-old. She capped a four-race win streak with a 1 1/4-length victory in the May 5 La Troienne. On the board in all but one of 13 starts to date, Big World has won seven times for earnings of $629,190.

“Big World has taken me on a great journey and her victory in the La Troienne was a highlight of my career as an owner,” Moss said.

Big World’s juvenile full-sibling Gracida, a $400,000 Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream purchase by Amr Zedan, was a front-running winner of his debut at Del Mar Saturday.

Louisiana Bred, Louisiana Sired Big World Wins G1 La Troienne

Louisiana’s 2016 3YO Champion filly, Big World (Custom For Carlos-Tensas Wedding Joy), won the prestigious  $300,000  La Troienne Stakes Presented by Spirited Funds (G1) at Churchill Downs May 5.

The Tom Amoss-trained Big World showcased her improving ability and mettle. The Maggi Moss colorbearer carved out early fractions of :23.75 and :48.28 and kept on finding more, refusing to let Romantic Vision by in the stretch. She captured the 1 1/16-mile test by 1 1/4 lengths on the undercard of the Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1).

Amoss says of the win, “I classify Big World’s win in the G1 La Troienne as one of the biggest thrills of my training career and believe I can speak for Maggie [Moss] when I say it was one of her biggest thrills in racing.”

He goes onto say “I credit the Louisiana Bred racing program and how Big World was able to build confidence through the winter before having to face Grade 1 competition.”

Under her previous trainer, Tony Dutrow, Big World hinted at what she was capable of, most notably when she captured the 2015 edition of the Tempted Stakes (G3) in her fourth start. Since being transferred to Amoss by owner Maggie Moss last year, the solidly built filly quietly racked up three wins on the Louisiana circuit and headed into the La Troienne off a win in a 1 1/16 mile allowance race at Oaklawn Park March 30.

Bred in Louisiana by Curt Leake and Elm Tree Farm (Michelle and Jody Huckabay), Big World became the first grade 1 winner for her sire, who stands at Clear Creek Stud. She improved her record to seven wins from 11 starts with $608,820 in earnings.

Big World is the first Louisiana-bred G1 winner since Happy Ticket (Anet) won the 2005 G1 Ballerina Stakes.

Custom For Carlos is the first Louisiana stallion to sire a G1 winner in over 25 years. Free Spirit’s Joy (Joey Bob) won the 1991 Super Derby at Louisiana Downs, which at the time was a million dollar G1 Stakes.
