Three fastest at Ocala show


Three juveniles worked an eighth of a mile in 10 seconds last weekend as the fastest over that distance at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's under-tack show in Ocala, Fla.

The under-tack previews took place at the sales company's facility on Saturday and Sunday to showcase 2-year-olds selling at the company's sale this Tuesday and Wednesday.

The fastest eighth-mile workers were Hip No. 265, a Maria's Mon-Colonial Cat colt; Hip No. 349, a Sky Mesa-French Line filly; and Hip No. 398, an Exchange Rate-Infinity filly.

The best quarter-mile time for the two preview sessions was 21 seconds, posted by Hip No. 544, a City Zip-Play Po colt.

Hip Nos. 455 and 590 put up the sessions' fastest three-eighths-mile time of 33.40 seconds. Hip No. 455 is daughter of Peace Rules and Long Gone Lady. Hip No. 590 is a Skip to the Stone filly out of Oopsy Daisy.

The auction's sessions were to start daily at 10:30 a.m. There are 591 horses in the catalog.
