Wind slows Ocala preview times


Juveniles at the Ocala Breeders' Company's Calder select sale fought gusty headwinds at the auction's final under-tack show Sunday, but several still managed to post eighth-mile times in under 11 seconds.

Five juveniles topped the eighth-mile work tab in 10.60 seconds. Those were Hip No. 91, a More Than Ready-Blushing Maggie filly consigned by Kings Equine, agent; Hip No. 104, a Delaware Township-Chubbs colt offered by Bruno DeBerdt and Rudy Delguidice's Excel Bloodstock, agent; Hip No. 117, a Siphon-Debra C. filly from agent Becky Thomas's Sequel consignment; Hip No. 162, a Hennessy-Jessica Rapid filly offered by Don Graham and Ocala Oaks; and Hip No. 197, a Yes It's True-Mrs. Greeley filly also consigned by Excel Bloodstock, agent.

The one-day auction takes place Wednesday, starting at noon.
