OBS shifts sale preview to Sunday, Monday


The Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company has postponed the first under-tack preview for its March 18-19 selected 2-year-old auction due to a forecast of severe weather in the Ocala, Fla., area.

The first under-tack preview had been scheduled for 9 a.m. on Friday and Saturday but will now take place on Sunday and Monday, starting each day at 9 a.m. Hip Nos. 1-230 will breeze on Sunday, and Hip Nos. 231-460 will work on Monday.

The sale’s second under-tack show remains scheduled for March 14-15 with a daily start time of 9 a.m.

On Friday morning, Ocala was under a tornado watch, and heavy rains and high winds with gusts up to 40 m.p.h. were predicted for the afternoon.
