POMONA, Calif. (Mar. 3, 2013) -- Complete results of the official training preview for the 2013 Barretts March Sale of Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training held Friday at Fairplex Park are now on-line at http://www.barretts.com/TrainingPreviews/preview/pr1mar13.htm
Video clips of all of the works, are available in sortable format for Apple products (including Ipad), as well as non-Apple products. A summary can be found in both PDF and EXCEL format. You can also watch the previews on YouTube.
The training preview was held on Friday on a very bright, sunny day with the temperature hitting 85 degrees and a slight tail wind creating near perfect conditions. The well made athletic group of horses, which just might be the best group of horses in the March Sale in the last decade and had trained exceptionally well at Barretts since their arrival, did not disappoint.
The fastest 1/8th mile work in March Sale history was recorded when Hip 67, a colt by first crop sire Dunkirk consigned by Excel Bloodstock (Bruno DeBerdt), Agent stopped the clock in 9 3/5. He did not own the record outright very long when approximately 35 minutes later Hip 84, a colt by the top sire Exchange Rate out of the stakes placed mare Perfect Paula consigned by Wavertree Stables (Ciaran Dunne) equaled this time.
The fastest ¼ mile work was accomplished earlier when Hip 27, a colt by the top class sire Malibu Moon out of the half-sister to $3 million earner Peace Rules from the consignment of Breaking Point Farm, broke the magic 21 second barrier when he stopped the timer in 20 4/5.
