Two colts tied for the fastest time over one furlong on Friday at the Barretts March selected 2-year-olds in training sale breeze show at Fairplex Park in Pomona, Calif., covering the distance in :9.60 seconds.

Both colts clocked in during the third and final group of juveniles to breeze on the day. The first was a gray or roan Dunkirk colt out of the winning Kyle’s Our Man mare Missy Turtle, who is the dam of three winners from four to race. He is a half-brother to stakes-placed winner Among the Willows.

Consigned by Excel Bloodstock, agent, the colt is from the family of Grade 2-placed stakes winner Egg Head, Puerto Rican Horse of the Year Bandit Bomber, and stakes winners Redding Ridge, Chief J Strongbow, Bara Lass, San Simon, and Baba Booyah.

Also finishing the eighth-mile in :9.60 seconds was a bay colt by Exchange Rate, consigned by Ciaran Dunne’s Wavertree Stables, agent. He is out of the stakes-placed winning Songandaprayer mare Perfect Paula. Notable family members include Grade 2 winners Nightmare Affair and Terra Incognita, as well as Grade 1-placed stakes winner Stolen Gold and Grade 2-placed winners Another Silver Oak, Radical Sabbatical and Dave in Dixie.

The fastest quarter-mile time came during the second flight of juveniles, when a Malibu Moon colt stopped the clock in :20.80 seconds.

The bay colt, consigned by Breaking Point Farm, is out of the winning Forest Wildcat mare Fashion Cat, who has produced two winners from four to race. Fashion Cat is a half-sister to multiple Grade 1-winner and sire Peace Rules and multiple stakes winner Wild Fashion. Other notable family members include stakes winners Toga Toga and stakes-placed winners Silverest and Regal Togs.

Can't wait to see the Dunkirk's arrive at the track. If memory serves he was a three million dollar baby himself from the producing mare Secret Status. Another three year old Todd Pletcher had that didn't quite make it to the big one.
