OBS Yearling Sale moving to October in 2017

The Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company has announced that its 2017 Yearling Sale will be moved from August to October. The Selected Yearling Sale is scheduled for Tuesday, October 10th with the Open Yearling Sale to be held Wednesday and Thursday, October 11th and 12th.  The Winter Mixed Sale will remain in its customary slot in January.

“Finding the most beneficial dates in a crowded yearling sale calendar is a little tricky,” said OBS president Tom Ventura. “Based on our feedback, we believe the October time slot offers a better overall fit for both consignors and buyers. Consolidating our Mixed Sales into January provides us the flexibility to shift the Yearling Sale to October. Moving the sale from August to the milder October weather will be a plus for buyers, consignors and horses. An additional side benefit of the new dates is the extra time after our Two Year Old sales to move our construction project along.”

Ruis Racing LLC’s Union Strike, who scored in the Del Mar Debutante (G1) in September, completes the strong OBS contingent.

There are four fillies entered in the Filly and Mare Sprint (G1). Kaleem Shah’s multiple graded stakes placed stakes winning Enchanting Lady will go, as will Reddam Racing LLC’s 2015 Alcibiades (G1) winner Gomo. Gary Barber & Sequel Racing’s Haveyougoneaway won Saratoga’s prestigious Ballerina (G1) in her last start and is set to go as is Treadway Racing Stable’s multiple stakes winner Wonder Gal.

J Stables, M. Scott Summers, Hope Summers and Daniel Summers’ Mind Your Biscuits will carry the OBS banner by himself in the Sprint (G1). He captured Saratoga’s Amsterdam Stakes (G2) this past summer.

Four of the seven OBS graduates entered the Turf Sprint (G1) are fillies taking on the boys. Michael B. Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier and Derrick Smith’s Acapulco was a graded winner at Ascot at two and a stakes winner at three at Churchill Downs. Phaedrus Flights LLC’s Celestine has won a pair of graded stakes this year and Ranlo Investments LLC’s graded stakes winner Lady Shipman, also a world traveler, is back again in the Turf Sprint after missing by a nose at Keeneland last year. Robert Falcone and All Heart Racing Stables’ stakes placed Rumble Doll completes the quartet. Abdullah Saeed Almadaah’s graded stakes placed gelding Green Mask has also put his passport to good use, competing in stakes from the U.S. to Hong Kong to Dubai. Head of Plains LLC, Haynes & Knight et al’s San Simeon Stakes (G3) winner Guns Loaded is entered and Gary Hartunian’s gelded graded stakes placed Stormy Liberal completes the OBS lineup.

The Eclipse Award is likely on the line in the Juvenile (G1) with a trio of OBS graduates looking to stake their claim. Kaleem Shah’s Klimt took the Best Pal (G2) and Del Mar Futurity (G1) this summer then settled for second in the FrontRunner (G1) at Santa Anita. Eric Fein, Christopher McKenna and Harris Fein’s Syndergaard is a nose from three for three after just missing in the Champagne (G1) last time out. China Horse Club and Winstar Farm’s Theory, the talk of Saratoga after breaking his maiden at first asking, returned to action and captured the Futurity (G3) at Belmont in his only other start.
