Bigger Picture

It is rare that a horse is at his best at the mature age of six, but that is exactly what is happening with Three Diamonds Farm’s Bigger Picture. A son of Breeders’ Cup Mile-placed Badge of Silver, he has flourished — like so many before — since being claimed by the master of making graded stakes winners out of high-level claims, Mike Maker.

Picked up for $32,000 in a Nov. 2015 one-mile Aqueduct turf event, Bigger Picture has earned over $800,000 since for his connections and put an exclamation on his form this year with a victory by a head in the United Nations at Monmouth Park July 1. Consistent at the top level, he was third last out in Saratoga’s Sword Dancer Aug. 25 and enters the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf as a horse who loves both the tight turns of a racecourse like Del Mar and the expected firm ground.

Since being claimed, Bigger Picture has won half his 12 starts to improve his career record to 10 wins from 27 tries. A true lover of distance events, he won the 1 3/8-mile Red Smith, 1 3/8-mile United Nations, 1 ½-mile John B. Connally and placed in four other graded turf route stakes.
