$600,000 Uncle Mo Colt Tops Barretts Spring Sale Of 2-Year-Olds In Training

A colt by champion juvenile Uncle Mo was the top-priced horse sold at the Barretts Spring Sale of 2-year-olds in training in Del Mar, Calif., on Wednesday, bringing a $600,000 bid from West Point Thoroughbreds. The sale topper was consigned by Eddie Woods, who purchased the colt at the 2017 Barretts August Select Yearling Sale for $60,000 from breeder Bar C Racing.

The California-bred colt, sold as Hip14, will go to trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, who trains Grade 2 San Vicente Stakes winner Kanthaka for West Point.

The sale topper, who worked a quarter mile in :21 1/5 in the under tack show, was produced from the El Prado mare Fresia and is from the family of Canadian champion Dance Smartly.

Second highest price of the sale was the $450,000 bid by Dennis O’Neill as agent for Hip 167, a Kentucky-bred colt by Into Mischief consigned by Ciaran Dunne’s Wavertree. Out of Cape Discovery, by Cape Town, the colt had the co-fastest workout time for a furlong, going the distance in 10 seconds flat.

The top-priced filly, purchased by Rockingham Ranch for $335,000, is from the first crop of foals by champion 3-year-old Will Take Charge. Consigned by Becky Thomas’ Sequel Bloodstock and selling as Hip 109, the filly is out of Trip for A.J., a multiple stakes-winning mare by Trippi. She was clocked in 10 1/5 in the under tack show.

Barretts reported 73 horses sold for $6,221,000, an average price of $85,219 and median of $50,000. There is no direct comparison to results from 2017, when Barretts offered two juvenile sales – one in March that grossed $6,777,000 and another in May that grossed $2,023,000. Forty two of the 115 juveniles sent through the auction ring on Wednesday, 36.5 percent, were listed as bought back by their consignors.
