Siphon Colt Among Fastest Workers in OBS Under Tack Show

A Siphon colt turned in the fastest quarter-mile work Monday during the first under tack show for the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's February select sale of 2-year-olds in training. He covered the distance in :21 3/5 at Calder Race Course in Florida.

Produced from the stakes-placed Mt. Livermore mare Master Print, the colt is a half-brother to added-money winner Skip the Print (by Skip Trial). His consignors are Hoby and Layna Kight, as agents. Hoby Kight purchased the colt for $45,000 at last year's OBS August yearling sale.

The fastest workers at an eighth of a mile were a Horse Chestnut colt and fillies by Tactical Advantage filly and Chief Seattle All were clocked in :10 1/5.

Bred and consigned by Don R. Graham and Ocala Oaks, the Horse Chestnut colt was produced from the stakes-winning No Sale George mare Baby Rabbit.

The Tactical Cat Advantage filly is out of the stakes-winning Damascus mare Damality and is a half-sister to added-money winner Conquestality (by Conquistador Cielo). The filly's consignors are the Kights, as agents. Hoby Kight purchased her as a weanling for $25,000 at the 2002 OBS October mixed sale.

The Chief Seattle filly is out of the unraced Carson City mare Don't Ring Me, who is a half-sister to grade II winner Call Me Up (by Miner's Mark) and stakes winner Clandestine Caller (by Housebuster). The filly's consignor is Crupi's New Castle Farm, agent. SGU Thoroughbreds purchased her for $40,000 at the 2003 September yearling sale.

The OBS February sale's second under tack show is Sunday, Feb. 1, at Calder, beginning at 10:30 a.m. (EST). The auction is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 3, at Calder, beginning at noon (EST).
