Second-time lucky for Tiznow colt at Barretts

A TIZNOW colt, who was sold to Vision Racing for $110,000 only two months ago in Ocala, topped the Barretts May Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale in California on Monday when selling for the significantly larger sum of $300,000.

Californian owners Gary and Wendy Broad purchased the colt from the consignment of Stephens Thoroughbreds, who were acting on behalf of Vision Racing. Out of the stakes-winning Jeblar mare Jira, the colt is a half-brother to the this season's Grade 2-placed colt Jeranimo.

Although 11 juveniles brought six figure prices during the session, the sale closed with declines across the board.

The aggregate plummeted 42 per cent to $4,511,000 for 123 juveniles sold. The average fell 31 per cent to $36,675 while the median dropped 17 per cent to $20,000. However, the clearance rate posted an improvement, jumping from 66 per cent to 71 per cent.

Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds ended the session as leading vendor with nine horses sold for a total of $1,067,000. They were headed by a Yes It's True colt, who was knocked down to George Bolton for $275,000.

Out of the stakes winner Chelsie's House, the colt had been retained by his vendors for $145,000 at the Ocala March Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale.
