Horsemen are reminded that the 2013 OBS Winter Mixed Sale, including the Horses of Racing Age Section, is closing on Friday, November 9th. The sale is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, January 15th and 16th, with the optional Under Tack Show set for Monday, January 14th.
OBS received extremely positive feedback from last year’s sale from both buyers and sellers. The Horses of Racing Age section with an under tack show fills a demand for owners looking to add to or adjust the size of their racing stables. Additionally, sellers of in-training horses now have an opportunity to market young, talented horses that may have had to miss juvenile sales. The timing is excellent, with the Tampa and Gulfstream meets in full swing and Ocala-area training centers, Payson Park, Palm Beach Downs and Palm Meadows occupied with northern racing stables wintering in Florida. The inaugural Horses of Racing Age sale last year produced a sales topper of $240,000.
While the Mixed Sale deadline remains November 9th, late entries for the Horses of Racing Age section will be accepted through November 22nd. Horses withdrawn prior to December 1st will not incur any fees. In addition, supplemental entries may be accepted after the catalog has been finalized. These entries will be available on the OBS website at www.obssales.com as well as a supplemental catalog distributed at the sale. At the optional Under Tack Show, horses may either breeze no less than three furlongs, or gallop. Video of the under tack show will be available for viewing on the sales grounds and the OBS website.
