2008 Big Brown Tac Pin
his pin honors Big Brown, winner of the 2008 Kentucky Derby with Derby Winning jockey Kent Desormeaux up. Big Brown won the Derby under a shadow: Eight Belles, the runner-up throughout the race, would be euthanized on the track after collapsing from a fatal leg injury. Regardless, Big Brown’s Derby win, and then his win in the Preakness, had many certain he would be the next Triple Crown winner. Unfortunately, he would fall short in the Belmont. Big Brown was bred by Monticule Farms, owned by Michael Iavarone at IEAH Stables and trained by Richard E. Dutrow, Jr.
