More than just Cal-breds


LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Barretts catalog features a wide array of 2-year-olds, both California-bred and out-of-staters.

While Cal-breds form a solid core of quality for the Barretts March select juvenile sale, the auction long has benefited from quality stock shipped in from beyond the California state line. Among the horses from outside the Golden State, there are a number that have noteworthy pedigrees. From about 180 cataloged entries for the March 4 sale, here are a few of the more interestingly bred offerings, which are too numerous to be listed in full here.
