Sequel's Tiger Ridge Colt Among Horses Attracting Interest at Barretts

Who are the hot horses at Barretts? Because of wet weather, drag racing, and the delays in the under tack shows, it's difficult to tell. But here's a few to watch:

Hip No. 124, Tiger Ridge -- Winning Journey colt. Consigned by Sequel Bloodstock, agent. Becky Thomas purchased him privately as a weanling for $30,000. Bought him back for $140,000 as a yearling because she thought he was worth at least $150,000. Worked an eighth of a mile in :10.3 on an off, sticky track and, in Thomas' opinion, is capable of doing much better. Other Sequel horses to keep an eye on include Hip No. 71, a Yankee Victor -- Rhondaling filly; Hip No. 83, a Touch Gold   -- Select Account filly; Hip No. 107, a Bernstein -- The Babe filly; Hip No. 135, a Good and Tough--Banissa filly; Hip No. 149, a Siphon -- Cherokee Crossing filly (that is a full sister to grade I winner Siphonic); and Hip No. 176, a High Yield -- Fumble colt.

Hip No. 81, an Awesome Again   -- Sassy Pants filly. Consigned by Jerry Bailey Sales Agency, agent. A $75,000 yearling, this filly is a half-sister to Madcap Escapade, who captured the Feb. 14 Old Hat Stakes at Gulfstream Park by 11 ¾ lengths. Worked an eighth in :10.2. Other horses in the Bailey consignment to keep track of include Hip No. 88, a Dixieland Band -- Silken Magic filly; Hip No. 161, an Honour and Glory -- Defer West colt named True Integrity; Hip No. 165, a War Chant -- Double Sunrise colt (Bailey says he is capable of doing much better than he did in the first under tack show, an eighth in :11 2/5); and Hip No. 211, a Pine Bluff -- Malley filly.

Hip No. 133, a Gentlemen -- Arrived Yesterday colt named Timely Gentlemen. Consigned by Donna Wormser. In the first under tack show had the fastest eighth: 10 seconds flat. His dam is a half-sister to grade II winner Mindy Gayle.
