Barretts announces dates for yearling sales in 2016

EmailEdited press release

The Barretts sales calendar will again feature an August selected yearling sale at Del Mar and a Fall yearling sale in October.

Last year’s select sale was held after the races at Del Mar’s Surfside RacePlace ITW, but this year’s sale will be conducted during daylight hours on August 30.  Barretts general manager Kim Lloyd said, “Despite the fact that we had an all-time California yearling record median sales price in our inaugural August sale last year, it made for too long of a day for both buyers and consignors. The move to a dark day of racing will benefit everyone involved in this sale.”

Due to stabling concerns in Southern California resulting from the Breeders’ Cup being held at Santa Anita Nov. 4-5, the October yearling sale will be held at the Los Angeles Fairgrounds in Pomona on Monday, October 17.  Yearlings will be stabled in the Barretts barns.

Nominations for the select yearling sale close April 1, 2016.
