Del Mar  :    :  Events  :   print


When: Sunday, July 21
Where: Del Mar Paddock
Time: 6:30 p.m.

Out-of-state horses eligible to run at Del Mar in the lucrative "Ship and Win" program will be offered for sale at an auction in the Del Mar Paddock after the races on Sunday, July 21.

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 a one-stop-shopping fashion.Barretts Sales and Racing, California’s premier horse auction company, will conduct the sale and hopes to offer as many as 35 horses of all ages ready for racing at the Del Mar meeting.

Last year, the 25 horses that sold at the event made 36 subsequent starts at Del Mar and more than 100 total outings in California by the end of the year. Two of the buys -- Nechez Dawn and I Dazzle -- even went on to become stakes winners in the state.

The July 21 paddock sale is 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 ( and/or research ownership through The Jockey Club/Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association' new website for prospective owners -- .
