March Sale Under Tack Show begins Thursday, March 8

The Under Tack Show for the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 2018 March Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training begins Thursday, March 8th.

There are three sessions, with Hips 1 – 191 on the first day. Hips 192 – 382 will go Friday, March 9th and Hips 383 – 573 will go Saturday, March 10th. All three sessions will begin at 8:00 a.m. The Under Tack Show and Sale will be streamed live via the OBS website as well as the DRF and Blood-Horse websites.

A total of 571 juveniles are cataloged for the two-day sale, set for Tuesday and Wednesday, March 13th and 14th, with both sessions beginning at 10:30 a.m. Hip 1 – 286 will sell on Tuesday; Hips 287 – 573 will sell on Wednesday.

At the onset of the 2018 juvenile sale season, previous OBS March Sale alumni continue to excel at the racetrack.
