Big Brass Bed

Big Brass Bed (ON) is a four-year-old chestnut mare purchased by As One in November 2023. A daughter of Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist and the Smart Strike mare Precision Farming, Big Brass Bed’s breeding provides a good balance of speed and stamina.

Our newest member of the As One stable started her racing career for her prior owner under trainer Chad Brown in April 2023 with a solid third pace finish in a maiden special weight race at Gulfstream Park. From there, she raced again in May and earned her first win in impressive style at Monmouth Park. Following that effort, she finished a competitive fourth in June at Belmont Park and sixth in the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks in July. She was then given some time off to continue to develop and ready herself for more racing.

Following As One’s purchase of Big Brass Bed, she has been under the training of Brendan Walsh in Florida preparing for her 2024 campaign, starting with her appearance at Gulfstream Park on Pegasus Day.

Last Race

Big Brass Bed returned to racing race on one of the winter’s biggest racing days in a 1 1/16 mile allowance race on the turf on Pegasus Day at Gulfstream Park. World class jockey Frankie Dettori piloted our new filly in her As One debut. Big Brass Bed was forwardly placed coming down the backstretch. Coming in to the turn, Dettori looked for a spot on the rail but it closed quickly. After shuffling back, Big Brass Bed rallied back to finish gamely down the stretch. In the end, she earned a 6th place finish in the competitive race. 

Next Race

Big Brass Bed came out of her race at Gulfstream well and remains under the care of trainer Brendan Walsh. The team will watch her as she continues to train to gauge her recovery time and target her next race. As with all of the As One horses, we will let Big Brass Bed tell us through her training when she is ready to return to the races, but it shouldn’t be long.
