Ocala colt breezes in 20.80


A Hold That Tiger colt breezed a quarter-mile in 20.80 seconds Sunday as the fastest worker over that distance at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's select 2-year-old sale preview.

Sunday's preview was the first of two breeze shows for the Feb. 12 auction in Ocala, Fla., and the first to be conducted over OBS's newly installed Safetrack synthetic surface. The second under-tack preview was to take place on Feb. 10 at 9 a.m.

Hip No. 20, a chestnut son of Hold That Tiger and the Gulch mare French Factor, will sell as part of W. D. North's consignment as the property of Tony Bowling, Bobby Dodd, and North.

Fourteen juveniles had the fastest eighth-mile time of 10 seconds.

The Feb. 12 auction will begin at noon at the sale company's Ocala facility.
