Con Marnane: consigned Big Issue

  PICTURE: CAROLINE NORRIS 

The first foal of Improvise, a 6f winner at three and runner-up in the Listed Wroxall Abbey Eternal Stakes at Warwick, the colt is by second-season sire Dubawi and hails from the family of the high-class juvenile sprinter Blue Duster.

Bought by Con Marnane of Bansha House Stables at the DBS St Leger Sale for £25,000, Big Issue fetched £140,000 at the breeze-up at Doncaster in April.

He runs in the colours of Malih Al Basti, who also bought the previous year's DBS Breeze-Up top lot, Angel's Pursuit, a Pastoral Pursuits half-brother to Dark Angel who went on to finish second in the Mill Reef Stakes.
