The Barretts’ March Sale in 2002 boasted a sales topper at $1.9 million who set a record for a juvenile filly sold at public auction. The daughter of Stormy Atlantic, now named Atlantic Ocean has gone on to become a multiple stakes winner.
The 2000 March sale included Barretts’ first national champion, Squirtle Squirt, crowned Champion Sprinter at the prestigious 2002 Eclipse Awards. The colt sold for a bargain price of $25,000.
Barretts’President and General Manager Gerald McMahon said, “We’re looking forward to another solid sale, although we are a bit concerned about the current global environment.” Past Barretts' sales have attracted a large contingent of international buyers.
Barretts Sales Complex is accessible through Fairplex Gate 12 on White Avenue. For more information about the Barretts March Sale, contact Barretts at (909) 629-3099 or www.fairplex.com.
