The start of the Under Tack Show for the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s Winter Mixed Sale’s Horses of Racing Age Section has been moved back one hour to 10:00 a.m. on Monday, January 24th due to a forecast of unseasonably cold temperatures early in the day.

A printed supplemental catalog, including Racing Age supplements Hip No’s 330 – 362, is now available at the sales grounds and may be viewed on the OBS website at:  http://obssales.com. Additional Racing Age supplements Hip No.’s 363 – 365 have been added. Their catalog pages can also be viewed on the website and are available in printed form at the sales office.

Highlighting the supplemental catalog is Hip No. 349, Fifth Anniversary, a 3-year-old daughter of Runhappy out of My Lady Lauren, by Hard Spun, second in the Woodbine Cares Stakes and winner of a Gulfstream Park allowance race this past Wednesday in track record time. race video
