Lester Raines and Ron Wiltse pulled their resources and purchased Greys Bricklayer for an unprecedented $80,000. The record-selling pup, sired by Baci and whelped from Greys Splashdown, was the center of attention during the meet. Instant Lee (Brett Lee x Gable Ruth) set the tone with a track record of 29.74 in race four eclipsing last year`s record by .05 seconds. Three races later Greys Bricklayer exploded out of the box leaving the field in his dust. He won by nine and a half-lengths lowering the mark to 29.69. The opening bid for Bricklayer was $40,000. Cary Alsobrook and Lester Raines entered into a bidding war over Bricklayer. The bidding stopped at $80,000 topping last year`s record $70,000 price paid for Rooftop Gizmo. "We`re going to take him to Daytona and try and win the pole," said Raines after the sale that bid the highest.
