The Ocala Breeders' Sales Co. (OBS) recently revised the results for the 2008 August yearling sale on its Web site (www.obssales.com) because of new rules governing horse auctions in Florida that took effect in July. Sale companies now are required to disclose any horses that did not change ownership after being reported as sold.
If what happened at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July select yearling auction is any indication, disclosure of the ownership of sale horses might not be a priority for consignors or buyers.
Sales Integrity Program Monitoring Committee will use a survey later this year to determine the effectiveness of the Sales Integrity Task Force's 2007 recommendations.
