The start of the under tack show for the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s March select sale of 2-year-olds in training has been postponed by a day because of expected rain and high winds March 10 in Central Florida. It will now begin March 11.
The second session will be held March 12 instead of March 11. Each session will get under way at 8 a.m. (EST).
“With ideal weather forecast for Friday (March 11) and Saturday (March 12), we had time built in for the change,” said Tom Ventura, the OBS general manager and director of sales. “Buyers will be able to view the horses under similar conditions each day.”
Hip numbers 1-244 in the auction’s catalog will breeze March 11 and Hip numbers 245-490 will work March 12.
The under tack show will be streamed live on the OBS website: www.obssales.com. The workouts will also be recorded and videos will be available, in their entirety or by individual hip number, the following day on the website. The videos also will be available for viewing at the sales grounds and for in-room viewing at the Ramada Inn, The Courtyard by Marriott, Homewood Suites, Residence Inn, and the Ocala Hilton in Ocala. Lounge viewing of the videos will be available at the Hilton.
The March sale is scheduled for March 15 and 16, with each session starting at 11 a.m. (EDT).
