A new horses of racing age section will be added to the Ocala Breeders' Sales Co.'s 2014 fall mixed sale scheduled for Oct. 14-16.
Entries for the sale close Aug. 1, but horses may be entered in the racing age section through Sept. 22. Two-year-olds as well as older horses may be entered in the racing age section, and can be showcased at the optional under tack show.
"Adding a racing age section and under tack show to the fall sale gives horsemen the opportunity to market two-year-olds who were not ready for the spring juvenile sales as well as horses with proven form," said OBS sales director Tod Wojciechowski. "It also offers racing stables a new opportunity to buy and sell horses prior to the end of the year. We are unique in that we are the only sales company with an under tack show for horses of racing age."
The racing age section will have an online catalog on the OBS website and a printed catalog available at the sales grounds in October. The online catalog features a sortable master index and links to daily pedigree updates.
The under tack show will be streamed live via the OBS website and via the Blood-Horse website. The workouts will also be recorded and videos will be available on the website, by individual hip number or entire under tack session. They will also be available for viewing in the video room adjacent to the Horsemen's Lounge in the sales pavilion as well as several kiosks in the lobby and the covered walking ring. In-room viewing is available at Courtyard by Marriott, Homewood Suites, Hampton Inn & Suites, Residence Inn and the Ocala Hilton, plus lounge viewing is available at the Hilton. Under tack show results are posted on the OBS website.
The iPad version of the catalog will be available via the equineline sales catalog App. The app allows users to download and view the catalog, record notes and also provides innovative search, sort and rating capability.
