OBS average up 12 percent


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Topped by a $110,000 Mr. Greeley filly, the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's June sale of 2-year-olds and horses of racing age sale ended Wednesday with a jump in the average price.

With 226 juveniles sold, the average price rose 12 percent to $16,857. Last year's sale, which did not have a second session, sold 210 juveniles for an average of $15,065. Four older horses sold this year for an average of $8,125; five older horses sold last year for an average of $11,500.

David Scanlon, agent, signed the ticket for the sale-topping filly. Ciaran Dunne's Wavertree Stables agency consigned the filly, who is out of the unraced Arctic Tern mare Oh Zone, making her a half-sister to Japanese winner Salt Rim.

Tuesday's opening-day session-topper was a $105,000 Montbrook gelding.
