Del Mar Horse Sale Scheduled for July 22

Del Mar logo

In a first for Del Mar, race-ready racehorses will be sold in its paddock following the day’s races on Sunday, July 22. The sale is expected to begin at approximately 6:30 p.m.

 

The idea behind the event is to bring out-of-state horses onto the Del Mar/California racing scene and to introduce new owners to the business in one-stop-shopping fashion. Barretts Equine Limited, California’s premier horse auction company, will conduct the sale and hopes to present between 20 and 30 horses of all ages ready for racing at the Del Mar meeting.

 

Del Mar partner Sentient Jet has signed on as the sponsor of the event, which will be known as the “Del Mar Paddock Sale, Presented by Sentient Jet.”

 

Del Mar’s race meeting was the lure for a popular yearling sale for 51 years between 1954 and 2004. But the 2012 sale will be different from those sessions in that it will not feature future stars, but runners set to perform right away at the track’s 75-year anniversary meet, which runs from July 18 to September 5.

 

Additionally, the sale horses will be eligible immediately for advantages under the track’s “Ship and Win” program, which was a solid hit when initially tried during its 2011 meeting. The program provides for out-of-state runners who are brought to Del Mar to earn a check for $1,000 for their first local start, then be eligible further for an extra bonus of 25% on top of whatever they win in purse monies in that start.

 

The July 22 paddock sale will be open to all interested parties. Those considering first-time ownership of a horse – either individually or with partners – are encouraged to contact the Thoroughbred Owners of California (toconline.com) and/or research ownership through The Jockey Club’s new website for prospective owners --  https://www.ownerview.com/


Parties interested in selling out-of-state horses in the event are encouraged to contact Barretts’ Kim Lloyd by phone (909) 629-3099 or e-mail  Lloyd@barretts.com
