OBS April: The Springboard to Success

For decades, the OBS Spring sale has been the springboard for horses that have gone on to compete at thoroughbred racing’s highest levels. From coast to coast in North America and from Dubai to Seoul overseas, Spring sale grads have won graded stakes and earned championship honors.

Kitten’s Joy, now among North America’s leading sires, came out of the 2003 Spring Sale and took home seven graded stakes and earned more than two million dollars. His 3-year-old campaign in 2004, highlighted by wins in the Secretariat (G1) and Joe Hirsch Invitational (G1) earned the Eclipse Award  as champion grass horse.

Three classic winners have been sold at the OBS Spring Sale. The first was 1991 graduate Lil E. Tee, whose earnings of over $1.4-million came from four graded wins including the 1992 Kentucky Derby (G1).
