The Barretts mixed sale held Oct. 25-26 at the Hinds Pavilion at Fairplex Park in Pomona, Calif., showed sharp declines over the same sale a year ago despite the dispersal of seven horses of racing age from the partnership of Noctis Stable, Neil Papiano and Steve Taub. Only one horse, stakes-winner Cheiron, sold for more than $100,000 when the hammer fell at $165,000 for the 3-year-old.
Seven racehorses, including 2004 Golden Gate Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. III) winner Tronare, 2004 Snow Chief Stakes winner Cheiron, and 2003 Forerunner Stakes winner Californian, have been supplemented to the catalogue for the Barretts October mixed sale.
Two perfect tickets in Wednesday's Pick Six at Hollywood Park were each worth a record payout of $1,312,808.60. The previous Hollywood Park Pick Six record payout was $928,127.40, paid to one winner on July 21, 2002.
Kristin Mulhall, the 21-year-old Californian who on Saturday aims to become the youngest trainer and first female ever to win a Kentucky Derby (gr. I) when saddling Imperialism at Churchill Downs, will double team the same day's $100,000 Inglewood Handicap (gr. IIIT) at Hollywood Park.
Chilean-bred Tronare, making his first American stakes start, defeated favored Soud in a powerful stretch duel to capture Sunday's $90,00 Golden Gate Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. IIIT) on the turf.
