“The objective of this sale is to encourage ownership and attract new people to the game,” commented Kim Lloyd, general manager of Barretts Sales and Racing, “Last yearʼs catalog of 45 horses has already produced Nechez Dawn, stakes winner at Del Mar in her first start for owner Ten Broeck Farm, and I Dazzle, winner of the American Beauty Stakes at Santa Anita and grade 2-placed last weekend at Hollywood Park for first-time owner Peter Peluso.
