Barretts Sale Breeze - Outstretched & Airborne
Hip number 60, a chestnut colt by Indygo Shiner out of Coatue, works 1/8-mile in 10-1/5 seconds for the 2012 Barretts March Selected 2-year-olds in Training Sale. Notice how all four of his hooves are off the ground at an extended point in the stride, like a "double-suspension gallop." He sold to Narvick International, Inc. for the third-highest price in the sale - $330,000. (March 2, 2012) Photo © 2012 Marcie Heacox, all rights reserved. FOR PERSONAL VIEWING PURPOSES ONLY.
