Terry Finley and the WPT buying team were active at the Barretts March 2-Year-Old in Training Sale on March 3 in Pomona, California, adding two colts to the stable. Our longtime California-based conditioner Craig Dollase is excited about these two youngsters joining his barn.

Say hello to tall, dark and handsome. Our new Sharp Humor colt (hip 33) out of the Gone West mare Pecan Bayou is a real looker. Our stride analyst loved his cadence and rhythm when he changed leads in his breeze prior to the sale.

Look back two and three generations in this pedigree and you’ll see some of the top sires of the modern era including Distorted Humor, Gone West, Forty Niner, Hansel, Mr. Prospector and Dr. Fager. Click here to view his pedigree.





Hip 44 is the first son or daughter of War Front we’ve purchased, and we couldn’t be more pumped up. War Front is a world class sire by one of the most influential sires ever, Danzig. There’s a ton of Danzig in this dude -- same color, same body type. He’s bred on the same cross as graded stakes winners Departing and Diamond Bachelor.

War Front is the sire of 17 graded stakes winners, including six grade one winners. His top runners include European sensation Declaration of War, The Factor, Data Link, War Command, Departing, Summer Front, and Lines of Battle. Click here to view his pedigree.
