Blinkers On was active at the Barretts October yearling sale on 10/7. We purchased a quick looking filly by Lucky Pulpit, sire of Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome. She is out of the productive mare Jetinwith Kennedy. She is now named Plane Lucky and will be trained by conditioner Peter Miller. Our second purchase is a well balanced, leggy colt by Marino Marini out of Just Lookn. Now named Look Me in the Eye, this athletic colt was our top pick in the entire sale. These offerings will be available for viewing on the website in about a week.
