Barretts sale sees declines


The $67,000 juvenile filly Legend Lucy was the high point of the Barretts June 2-year-old and racing-age sale in Pomona, Calif., which ended Tuesday night with declines across the board.

The Comic Strip filly sold as Hip No. 82 to Tom Acker and Bob Toomajian. The Havens Bloodstock agency sold the filly, a daughter of Raise a Legend, an unraced Northern Prospect mare. The filly is from the family of Santa Anita Derby winner Larry the Legend.

The single-day auction sold 120 lots for a total of $1,134,400, down 3 percent from last year's $1,164,300 gross for 107 lots. The average price fell 13 percent, from $10,881 to $9,453, and the median dropped 8 percent, from $6,500 to $6,000. Buy-backs rose from 21 percent to 27 percent.
