Big Shindig is a 2010 Bay Stallion standing at 16.2 hands. He is an incredibly human-oriented and sensible fellow who loves nothing more than to be close to his people.
He has a pedigree full of speed, heart, and endurance. If you're looking to breed for that competitive edge and drive, look no further. Big Shindig was sired by Red Giant who earned more than a million dollars during his racing career (before it was cut short due to injury) and set a world record in 2008 for 1 1/4 on turf.
His grandsire is none other than Giants Causeway, one of Storm Cat's most famous sons. Winning more than 3 million dollars during his racing career, he won the European Horse of the Year in 2000 and was the leading North American Sire
('09,'10,'12) and still holds a Top Ten spot for Leading Sire today.
Big Shindig's Dam Wishah was sired by Red Ransom. Red Ransom sired more than 70 stakes winners and was sired by Epsom Derby winner Roberto.
Ransom's Dam was Arabia, a daughter of Hall of Fame-Inductee Damascus. Wishah's Dam, Ninja Gold, was out of the famous sire Ninjinsky II.
Ninjinsky sired more than 155 stakes/group winners. He was the 15th winner of the British Triple Crown (1970), British Horse of the Year (1970), Leading Sire in GB and Ireland (1986), North American Leading Broodmare Sire ('93,'94), and was the only sire to have a winner in the Kentucky Derby and Epsom Derby in the same year.
