Broad Brush Recovery Complete

Graham J. Beck's Gainesway Farm in Lexington, Ky., announced a clean bill of health for prominent stallion Broad Brush this week. Radiographs taken last week indicate the 21-year-old former leading sire has healed completely following fusion surgery in September to repair his left front fetlock. Broad Brush is back on a normal turnout schedule at the Lexington, Ky. farm and will resume breeding duties at the opening of the season for a fee of $100,000 live foal.

Broad Brush, the leading sire in 1994 when his son Concern won the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I), impregnated 42 of the 47 mares (89%) from his 2003 book. "He's always been a fertile stallion," said director of sales Michael Hernon.

Broad Brush (Ack Ack--Hay Patcher, by Hoist the Flag) has sired 83 stakes winners.
