The nomination form for the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 2017 Selected Sale of Yearlings is now available via the OBS website at: obssales.com/OBSPAGES/2017OctoberNominationForm.pdf

The Selected Yearling Sale, long held in August, is now scheduled for Tuesday, October 10th. The Open Yearling Sale will be held Wednesday and Thursday, October 11th and 12th.

In addition to getting a new home on the calendar, nominations to the Selected Yearling Sale are now free. Following examination by the selection committee, nominees will be notified as to acceptance by August 3rd.

“We believe the October time slot offers a better overall fit for both consignors and buyers,” said OBS president Tom Ventura when the change was announced. “Moving the sale from August to the milder October weather will be a plus for buyers, consignors and horses.”

The nomination form may be downloaded and returned via email at obs@obssales.com or via fax at 352-237-3566.

For more than two decades, the OBS Yearling Sale has produced horses than have competed at the highest levels of the sport in North America and overseas, winning numerous Breeders’ Cup events, the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Dubai World Cup. Twenty four Yearling Sale graduates have earned a million dollars or more and six have won Eclipse Awards. Since the beginning of 2016, 94 Yearling Sale graduates have won or placed in 142 stakes races, with 34 grads accounting for 46 stakes victories.

Highlights of the past year include a grade one victory by Speedway Stable LLC’s Noted and Quoted, who captured Santa Anita’s Chandelier Stakes (G1) in September. The Florida-bred daughter of The Factor was sold by Summerfield, Agent at the 2015 August Sale. Selected Sale conformation photo

The son of Freud, who has earned $676,740 to date, was sold by Select Sales at the 2014 August Sale.

Among the most recent Yearling Sale graduates to make the grade is Veb Racing Stable Corp.’s Distinta, winner of the Inside Information Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream in her last start in March. It was the first stakes win for the mare by Summer Bird, now 22-4-7-3 with $299,715 in earnings. The two-time OBS graduate was sold by Dapple Stud, Agent, for $30,000 at the 2013 August Selected Yearling Sale. selected sale conformation photo
