OBS Reschedules Two-Year-Old Sales

The Ocala Breeders’ Sale Company has rescheduled its 2020 Spring and June Sales of Two Year Olds in Training in response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

“As we all continue to deal with the current circumstances,” said OBS Director of Sales Tod Wojciechowski. “We need to balance a sense of social responsibility with providing our consignors the best opportunity to market their horses and give buyers the best place to obtain them.”

The Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training has been moved to Tuesday through Friday, June 9th – 12th, with the Under Tack Show set for Sunday through Saturday, May 31st – June 6th. Each Under Tack session will begin at 7:30 a.m. The catalog will stay intact with the original horses hip numbered for the sale.

The June Two-Year-Olds & Horses of Racing Age Sale is now scheduled for Tuesday through Friday, July 14th – 17th with entries closing May 4th. The Under Tack Show will be held Monday, July 6th through Saturday, July 11th.  The Under Tack sessions will all begin at 7:30 a.m.

In an effort to provide another opportunity to buy and sell Two-Year-Olds, OBS is considering adding a Two-Year-Old in Training session to the October Yearling Sale, presently scheduled for October 6th through 9th.

OBS March Sale will be held as scheduled

The Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 2020 March Sale of Two Year Olds in Training will be held as scheduled. After careful consideration of the Coronavirus situation and consultation with consignors and prospective buyers, the OBS Board of Directors determined holding the sale as scheduled is the proper course of action.

“We are mindful of the nature of the situation, and continue to monitor circumstances that may force a change in our position,” said OBS president Tom Ventura. “Certainly there is heightened awareness of the importance of proper hygiene and we are taking steps to follow recommended sanitary protocols.”

Steps taken by OBS to assure the well-being of all March Sale patrons include increased cleaning schedules and protocols, doors not required to be locked for security will remain open to eliminate the need for patrons to use the handles, and all OBS employees will be instructed to follow sanitary procedures, to stay home if sick and help patrons have as safe and healthy visit to the sale as possible.

For prospective buyers unable to attend the March Sale or unsure about traveling at this time, OBS will increase phone bid capacity.

The third and final Under Tack session will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 14th with Hip Numbers 455 – 681 scheduled to breeze. The March Sale itself is set for Tuesday and Wednesday, March 17 – 18, with each session beginning at 10:30 a.m.

The brightest star to emerge from last year’s March Sale was Jeff Drown and Don Rachel’s unbeaten Structor, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) as well as Belmont’s Pilgrim Stakes (G3). The now 3-year-old son of Palace Malice, trained by Chad Brown, has earned $709,500 to date. Consigned to the 2019 March Sale by Pick View LLC, he breezed an Under Tack quarter in :21 1/5 before he was sold for $850,000. watch his under tack video

The 2019 March Sale also produced Reddam Racing LLC’s well-traveled Fore Left, who took Belmont’s Tremont Stakes in June, Santa Anita’s Sunny Slope Stakes in October and then scored in the UAE 2000 Guineas (G3) at Meydan in February. Those races helped propel the 3-year-old colt by Twirling Candy, trained by Doug O’Neill, to a 9-4-0-2 career record with $355,902 in earnings. He was consigned by Wavertree Stables to the 2019 OBS March Sale, where he went through the ring after turning in an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video   Meydan race video
