OBS adds racing age section to fall mixed sale


A horses of racing age section will be added to the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's fall mixed sale, to be held Oct. 14 to 16.

Sale entries close on Aug. 1, but 2-year-olds and older horses may be entered in the racing age section through Sept. 22. An optional under tack show will also be scheduled.

“Adding a racing age section and under-tack show to the fall sale gives horsemen the opportunity to market 2-year-olds who were not ready for the spring juvenile sales as well as horses with proven form,” OBS sales director Tod Wojciechowski said. “It also offers racing stables a new opportunity to buy and sell horses prior to the end of the year. We are unique in that we are the only sales company with an under-tack show for horses of racing age.”

The Racing Age section will have an online catalog on the OBS website at www.obssales.com and a printed catalog available at the sales grounds in October. The online catalog features a sortable master index and links to daily pedigree updates. The iPad version of the catalog will be available via the Equineline Sales Catalog App.
