Topping the Barretts May Sale at $300,000 Monday night was hip No. 9, a son of Master Command consigned by Ocala, Florida’s Wavertree Stables.
Brett Lindenbaum, agent, signed the ticket for the chestnut colt who is out of the stakes-placed Salt Lake mare Grinch. The Kentucky-bred juvenile worked an eighth in :10 at the under tack preview. The agent indicated Bob Baffert will train the colt for an undisclosed client.
