Three go furlong in 9.8 seconds for Barretts sale


Two fillies and a colt fired off eighth-mile works in 9.80 seconds on Monday to top the work tab at the Barretts March select juvenile sale's first under-tack show.

The under-tack show was the first of two for the March 20 Barretts auction in Pomona, Calif. The second preview will take place on March 18.

The fastest eighth-mile workers were Hip No. 51, a Bernstein-Cometuseibella filly offered by B.C.3. Thoroughbreds, agent; Hip No. 185, a daughter of Malibu Moon and Tsu Lou consigned by the Sequel Bloodstock agency; and Hip No. 60, a Johannesburg-Decadent Designer colt, also consigned by B.C.3. Thoroughbreds.

The quickest quarter-mile breeze was by Hip No. 147, an Officer colt out of Rovie Wade, who covered the distance in 20.80 seconds. He, too, is in the B.C.3. Thoroughbreds consignment.

The auction will begin at 2 p.m. on March 20 and will be covered live on HRTV.
