OBS under-tack preview: Three 2-year-olds run a furlong in less than 10 seconds


Three juveniles sped an eighth-mile in 9.8 seconds Saturday at the second and final under-tack preview for the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s March select sale, which will take place March Tuesday and Wednesday  in Ocala, Fla.

Saturday’s under-tack show featured Hip Nos. 245-490.

The three fastest workers over the one-furlong distance were Hip No. 302, a Yes It’s True-Sunrise Summer filly; Hip No. 332, a Henny Hughes-Val Marie filly; and Hip No. 430, a filly by first-crop sire Bob and John out of Chirimoya. The 9.8 time equaled that posted by Hip No. 137, a Scat Daddy-Madagascat colt on Friday at the breeze show’s first session.

The fastest time over a quarter-mile was 20.6 seconds. Two auction 2-year-olds breezed in that time. They were Hip No. 265, a Flatter-Silence Please colt, and Hip No. 387, a Dixie Union-Big City Dream filly. The time was the fastest for the two-day under-tack show.
