Barretts Yearling Catalog Now Online

From Barretts
DEL MAR, Calif. (July 1, 2015) -- The catalog for the inaugural Barretts Select Yearling Sale is now on-line and will be mailed soon.  This auction of 68 yearlings will be held on Saturday night, August 15 starting approximately 30 minutes after the last race in the Surfside Race Place located on the grounds of the Del Mar Racetrack in Del Mar, California.  We believe this will be the best group of yearlings in terms of quality and depth to be offered in the Western United States in the last 30 years and that this auction will soon become a yearly marquee event of the summer Del Mar race meet.  Because of the depth of the quality for this sale, we have instituted for the first time an “Also Eligible List” which begins with Hip Number 70 in the catalog and will allow horses to “scratch into the sale” if a yearling numerically below them (in terms of Hip Number) is withdrawn.
