A filly by Lucky Pulpit recorded the fastest time at the Barretts under tack preview at Del Mar March 27.

The filly worked a furlong in :09 4/5 in preparation for the Barretts select 2-year-old sale March 29.

“We had a wonderful breeze show,” said Kim Lloyd, general manager of Barretts. “I was very pleased with the turnout and very pleased with the performance of the horses.”

Bred by The Cole Ranch in California, the filly who breezed in :09 4/5 is the only horse in the catalog by the late Lucky Pulpit, sire of two-time Horse of the Year California Chrome. Andy Havens’ Havens Bloodstock Agency consigned the youngster as Hip 6.

Now named Californiabyanose, the filly is out of the Mr. Greeley mare Nine to Five Lady, from the family of Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Concern. Californiabyanose sold for $42,000 to John Brocklebank, as agent, at last year’s Barretts October sale.
