Brown Almighty through with dirt
Hot Springs, AR (Sports Network) - It appears that 3-year-old colt Brown Almighty is off the Kentucky Derby trail and headed back to the turf. The chestnut colt finished up the track in Monday's Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park.
Trained by Tim Ice, Brown Almighty didn't like the sloppy Oaklawn track and finished eighth in the 10 horse field. According to the horse's Facebook page he came out of the stakes "fine and healthy."
His ownership group and Ice will enter him in a race on Monday, March 11 at Ocala in the OBS Sales Stakes on the synthetic track then have him race on the turf again.
Brown Almighty raced on the turf in his first five starts, including the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf where he finished ninth. His first try on dirt was in the Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn on Jan. 21 when he came in fifth.
The colt has earned $118,500 with two wins and two seconds in seven starts.
