Fillies by WinStar stallions Colonel John and Harlan's Holiday turned in two of the fastest times at the Barretts 2-year-old auction under tack preview show March 1 at the southern California auction house. The sale itself will be held March 4 at 3 pm PST.
Both fillies are consigned by Wavertree Stables and breezed an eighth-mile in an identical :09 4/5 seconds. The Colonel John filly, who is part of his first crop, is cataloged as hip No. 74. The dark bay Florida bred is out of the unraced Red Bullet mare Mystery Bullet, who is a half-sister to the 2-year-old stakes winner Forty Thieves.
The Harlan's Holiday filly, hip No. 116, is the first foal out of the winning mare Tasha's Star, who is out of the excellent broodmare Ms. Cuvee Napa. Tasha's Star is a half-sister to Grade 3 Sorrento S. winner Tasha's Miracle (by Harlan's Holiday), as well as Grade 2-placed Deb's Charm.
