Huge Barretts 2yo sale for Malibu Moon

Malibu Moon

Tuesday, March 04, 2014
A trio of offerings at the Barretts 2014 March Sale of Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training sale on March 3 grossed a sales-topping total of $1,950,000 and an average sale price of $650,000, both tops for all sires with more than one juvenile to go through the ring.

Remarkably, Malibu Moon had three of the top five prices at the March 3 auction, including the top filly of the sale at $950,000.

Hip No. 140, who is out of the Hennessy mare In the Ghetto, is a half sister to Champagne S. (G1) winner First Samurai. Hartley/DeRenzo consigned the filly, bred in Kentucky by John D. Gunther, while Todd Pletcher, as agent, signed the winning ticket.

"She's pretty special," said Dean DeRenzo. "We thought she was beautiful (as a yearling) and thought that she would grow a lot. She was ready early, so we decided to come to an early sale with her."

Hip No. 48, a colt out of the Distorted Humor mare Rosy Humor, was also bought by Pletcher, who paid $550,000 Kings Equine, agent consignee. Rosy Humor, who has yet to have any foals to race, comes from the same family as European and North American 2-year-old champion Johannesburg

Wavertree Stables Inc. consigned hip No. 24, a filly out of Necessary Evil purchased by Demi O'Byrne for $450,000. This is the first foal for Necessary Evil, who won the Grade 3 Hollywood Juvenile Championship.
