Barretts Plans “Bigger Event” for The Paddock Sale
On July 21, the first Sunday of the Del Mar race season, Barretts, in cooperation
with the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, will conduct its second annual Paddock
Sale at Del Mar featuring “Race Ready” horses in training.
“The objective of this sale is to encourage ownership and attract new people
to the game,” commented Kim Lloyd, general manager of Barretts Sales and
Racing, “Last year's catalog of 45 horses has already produced Nechez Dawn,
stakes winner at Del Mar in her first start for owner Ten Broeck Farm, and
I Dazzle, winner of the American Beauty Stakes at Santa Anita and recently
grade 2-placed at Hollywood Park for first-time owner Peter Peluso.”
Nominations close June 4 but entries will be accepted until two weeks prior
to the sale, and horses qualifying for Del Mar's “Ship and Win” Program will
receive a shipping subsidy up to $1,500.
Barretts Sales Stakes Close June 15th
Two-Year-Olds, Yearlings and weanlings which pass through the Barretts sale ring may be made
eligible for one of two sale stakes ($100,000 guaranteed including $7,500 in nominators awards)
to be run during the Fairplex Race Meeting, the Barretts Juvenile Stakes for two-year-old
colts/geldings and the Barretts Debutante for two-year-old fillies (6-1/2 furlongs), provided that the
initial nominating fee, all appropriate sale fees, and subsequent eligibility payments have been
made to Barretts, or Fairplex Park where applicable. Buyers (and consignors in the event of
charge backs) will be required to maintain eligibility by making additional sustaining payments in a
timely manner. The amounts and timing of such payments must be made as follows: $250 per
horse (nonrefundable), due June 15 of two-year-old year; $500 at time of entry; and $500 to start.
If any of these payments are not timely made, there will be no supplementary payments accepted
for any two-year-old i n order to restore its eligibility for either stakes. The dates of payment of the
entry and starting fees will be determined by the Fairplex Park Racing Secretary. If there is a
sufficient number of eligible two-year-olds, there will be a division for colts and geldings and a
division of fillies. Should either division overfill, the Racing Secretary may elect to split either race
or to limit the number of starters, with reference to stakes winners; next stakes-placed horses;
then winners; and lastly maidens by earnings. There may be exclusions due to these conditions.
Should either division fail to fill, the two divisions may be combined into one race. Conditions of
either division may be altered due to unforeseeable circumstances.
