The under-tack previews for the upcoming sale of 2-year-olds in training by the Ocala Breeders Sales Company have been postponed a day because of heavy rainstorms in the Ocala, Fla., area.

Originally scheduled to begin Tuesday morning, the four days of under-tack shows will now begin Wednesday at 8 a.m.

Storms have been coming through the area overnight and are expected to continue throughout the day, with Marion County under a tornado watch until 2p.m., the sale company s general manager, Tom Ventura, said in a press release Tuesday.

Our Safetrack can handle the rain, said the release, but the decision to cancel was made for the safety and welfare of the horses and people involved.
