LOUISVILLE - Retired Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner, Big Brown is reportedly seeing Rags to Riches. The couple were first spotted grazing together during Breeders Cup in last October.

Riches was horse racing's "it Filly" of 2007 after winning the Belmont Stakes as the only female in the race. The International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) named her 2007 World Champion 3-year-old Filly and she was also a Teen Choice Award nominee for Choice Female Athlete.

Riches comes from a long line of racing champions.  Her sire is Hall of fame Stallion, A.P. Indy.  And her Grandsire is 1997 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew.  She is also related to several Canadian champions on her Dam's side.

Brown captured America's heart last year while making a run at the Triple Crown, but finished last in the Belmont in June when his shoe fell off.  He would have been the first Crown winner since 1978.  Reps for Brown say the coupe met in a stable just after the his Derby victory.

Riches was seeing Giant's Causeway and has children with the champion, but the couple split last summer after Causeway decided to return to the European Circuit.

When asked if he had any objections of the pairing, Causeway said "Naayyyy"

Brown and Riches plan on having a quiet life in Kentucky now that they are both retired from racing.  The couple plans to have a foal of their own.
