OBS Day of Racing on November 24, 2020 has been cancelled

Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company, Inc. has cancelled the 2020 OBS Day of Racing, scheduled to be held on November 24, 2020.

The restrictions and protocols implemented by racetracks due to the Covid-19 situation have created limited availability of racing personnel which prevents OBS from conducting these races in a safe responsible manner. Racetracks in Florida and throughout the country have policies in place which do not allow jockeys to move freely between tracks.  Testing and quarantine requirements for jockeys that travel away from their home racetrack will inhibit their participation at OBS.

“With Gulfstream Park preparing for its championship meet and Tampa Bay Downs starting Thanksgiving weekend, it is important for racing in Florida to continue uninterrupted”, stated OBS President Tom Ventura.  “OBS will evaluate potential future dates for racing that complements the racing calendar. “

Contact Jay Friedman for more information at (352) 237-2154 or via email obs@obssales.com.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Live racing returns on Tuesday, November 24th. Two sprint stakes for OBS Sale graduates headline the day. Free nominations to both races close on Tuesday, November 10, 2020. The strategic position on the calendar provides horsemen a stakes opportunity before the kickoff of the Gulfstream Park Championship and the Tampa Bay Downs meets. The two OBS stakes are non-wagering events, but there will be pari-mutuel wagering available on eight additional races. Entries will be taken on Tuesday, November 17th.

The OBS Sprint and the OBS Filly and Mare Sprint are for three years old and upward. Both stakes races will be run over six furlongs, each with a guaranteed purse of $125,000, restricted to OBS graduates. Entries will be taken on Tuesday, November 17th. Both races will be run as non-wagering events. The eight pari-mutuel races will feature quarter horse races for two year olds as well as for three years old and upward at distances from 220 yards to 440 yards. Up to four thoroughbred maiden and starter allowance races may be used as substitute races. Purses range from $4,000 to $7,000 with all starters guaranteed a minimum of $200.

William & Corrine Heiligbrodt’s Mitole made an emphatic case for an Eclipse Award in the $2,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1). Cleverly rated off the early pace by Ricardo Santana, Jr., he went after front-running fellow OBS graduate Shancelot (March ’18) in the stretch, caught him a furlong from home and beat him to the wire by a length and a quarter. OBS graduate Engage (March ’17) settled for fourth. Consigned to the 2017 April Sale by Grassroots Training & Sales, the 4-year-old colt by Eskendereya was sold for $140,000 after an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat. Trained by Steve Asmussen, his seventh stakes win leaves him with a 14-10-2-2 career record and earnings of $3,104,910. watch his under tack video

Exline-Border Racing LLC, David A. Bernsen & Susanna Wilson’s Storm the Court, ignored at 45-1, jumped into the head of his class in the $2,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1), taking the lead at the start and keeping it to the wire, holding off a stretch challenge by fellow OBS April graduate Anneau d’Or, overlooked at 28-1, and besting him by a neck. It’s the first stakes win for the 2-year-old son of Court Vision, third last out in Santa Anita’s American Pharoah (G1). Consigned to the 2019 April Sale by Woodside Ranch, Agent, he worked an Under Tack quarter in :21 2/5 before he was purchased for $60,000 by Marette Farrell, Agent for Exline-Border Racing LLC. The newest OBS millionaire, he’s now 4-2-0-1 and has earned $1,172,951 for trainer Peter Eurton. watch his under tack video

Jeff Drown and Don Rachel’s Structor lodged his bid for an Eclipse Award in the $1,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1), now three for three with two graded stakes wins after a late charge carried him to a three quarter length victory. The 2-year-old colt by Palace Malice saved ground in the early going, swung out after turning for home and was up in the final yards to catch fellow OBS graduate Billy Batts (March ’19), who took the lead in the final sixteenth and proved second best. Structor, trained by Chad Brown, has earned $709,500 to date. He sped an Under Tack quarter in :21 1/5 before he was purchased for $850,000 out of the Pick View LLC consignment at the 2019 OBS March Sale. watch his under tack video
