10-second works keep coming at OBS


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Four juveniles worked a furlong in 10 seconds Thursday to top the work tab at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s third under-tack session in Ocala, Fla.

The under-tack shows, which end Friday, showcase horses selling at the OBS spring 2-year-old sale on April 21-24.

The fastest horses over an eighth of a mile were Hip No. 782, an Officer-Not to Be Outdone filly; Hip No. 847, a City Zip-Play Po colt; Hip No. 896, a Langfuhr-Race to Glory filly; and Hip No. 997, a Pleasantly Perfect-Separata filly.

The quickest quarter-mile works, in 21 seconds, were put up two colts and two fillies. The colts were Hip No. 718, a Songandaprayer-Miss Delta colt, and Hip No. 986, a High Yield-See U at my Window colt. The fillies were Hip No. 826, a Roar of the Tiger-Penn Central filly, and Hip No. 907, a Posse daughter out of Real Crafty Belle.

One juvenile had the day’s fastest three-eighths-mile work. That was Hip No. 897, who breezed the distance in 33.40 seconds. She is a Gulf Storm filly out of Raging Dancer.

The final under-tack show got underway at the OBS facility Friday at 9 a.m.

The auction runs April 21 -24, with sessions beginning daily at 10:30 a.m. in the OBS pavilion.
