Last year’s OBS winter mixed sale was topped by Falling Sky, a 3-year-old Lion Heart colt who sold to Justin Casse, agent, for $425,000. Falling Sky went on to win the Grade 3 Sam F. Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs that spring and compete in the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

The OBS Championship Stakes races, run this year for the first time in conjunction with the winter mixed sale, are set for Tuesday, Jan. 21
