Email

Two horses listed as not sold for $500,000 and $400,000 at Monday’s Barretts select sale of 2-year-olds in Pomona will be sent to trainer Phil D’Amato in the spring, the trainer said Thursday.

A Hard Spun colt bought back for $500,000 by owner John Liviakis and a Street Sense filly bought back for $400,000 by owner Mark Martinez’s Agave Racing will have a 60-day break before being sent to Santa Anita, D’Amato said.

The Street Sense filly had a one-furlong workout in 9.80 seconds at a presale training preview Feb. 20. D’Amato said both prospects will be pointed for the Del Mar summer meeting.
