Bolton Purchases Hard Spun Colt

George Bolton, who bought the sale topper out of the 2010 Barretts May sale to come up with The Factor, paid $220,000 for this year’s sale topper, a son of Hard Spun  . The colt was one of seven to bring six figures at the May 16 sale in Pomona, Calif.

A total of 72 2-year-olds and one horse of racing age sold at the May sale. The 2-year-olds averaged $36,903, up 2.5% over 2010, when 86 juveniles averaged $36,000. The median declined slightly, from $20,500 to $20,000. Only 17 failed to sell this year, a buy-back rate of 19.1%. In 2010, 24.6% failed to sell.
