CHAM­PI­ONS DE­SCENDED FROM BON­NIE SCOT­LAND THROUGH BEN BRUSH

EQUUS - - Conformati­on Insights -

Ben Brush was a horse of bet­ter than av­er­age sub­stance. Pos­sessed of much stayer blood, in 40 ca­reer starts he was the win­ner 25 times, pri­mar­ily over clas­sic dis­tances. Though he had a cou­ple of close wins in high-class com­pany, on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions he won by many lengths while con­ced­ing as much as 19 pounds to op­po­nents. Un­for­tu­nately, Ben Brush’s di­rect male line has been al­lowed to die out, although his name ap­pears in the pedi­gree of 48 of the last 50 Ken­tucky Derby win­ners.
