Ocala juvenile sale: Hook and Ladder filly has fastest time under tack


LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s first under-tack session for the April juvenile sale saw a Hook and Ladder filly cruise a quarter-mile in 20.6 seconds on Tuesday.

That was the fastest time at the distance at the first of two sessions. Hip No. 92, a Hook and Ladder daughter of Savasana, was the quickest over a quarter-mile. She’s consigned by Wavertree Stables.

An Officer colt and a With Distinction filly put up the day’s fastest eighth-mile works when they went in 10 seconds flat. The Officer colt out of Reagle Mary is Hip No. 29 in the Stephens Thoroughbreds consignment, and the filly, a With Distinction daughter of Turbo Topper, sells as Hip No. 329 in the M & H Training and Sales consignment.

The Orientate colt cataloged as Hip No. 319 posted the fastest three-eighths-mile breeze in 33.2 seconds. The All In Sales agency consigns the son of Trisha Runs.

The second under-tack session was taking place Wednesday starting at 8 a.m. with Hiip Nos. 345-688 set to breeze over the OBS facility’s synthetic surface.

The auction runs April 18-21 at OBS in Ocala, Fla.
