Derby Dreamers Racing Stable
Big Bazinga is by Bluegrass Cat, runner-up to Barbaro in the 2006 Kentucky Derby.
An earner of more than $1.7 million, Bluegrass Cat captured such major events as the Haskell Invitational and the Remsen, and he also took runner-up honors in the Belmont Stakes and Travers.
Bluegrass Cat, a son of Storm Cat out of a full sister to 2010 Kentucky Derby hero Super Saver, has sired Grade 2 scorers Kathmanblu and Teeth of the Dog; current Grade 3-winning sprinter Go Blue or Go Home; and 2011 Delta Jackpot victor Sabercat, 15th in the following year's Derby.
Big Bazinga is out of Darling Daughter, the third-place finisher in the 2006 Sabin Handicap at Gulfstream Park. She is also responsible for Holiday Mischief, who landed the 2013 Super Derby Prelude at Louisiana Downs.
Darling Daughter is by Maria's Mon, the champion two-year-old colt of 1995 and sire of two Kentucky Derby winners -- Monarchos (2001) and the aforementioned Super Saver. Other notable progeny include champion filly Wait a While and Grade 1-winning millionaire Awesome Maria.
Maria's Mon mares have produced Lady of Fifty, successful in the 2013 Clement Hirsch at Del Mar; ill-fated Chandelier heroine Secret Compass; and multiple Grade 2 veteran Caracortado.
Darling Daughter is herself a half-sister to current turf stakes scorer Deanaallen'skitten. This is the family of Group 2 heroine Nashmeel, the dam of Grade 1 turf star Light Jig.
