Led by 2020 graduate Medina Spirit’s Kentucky Derby triumph, OBS June Sale graduates have been in the headlines often since the beginning of the year.
Zedan Racing Stables Inc.’s Medina Spirit became the fourth OBS graduate to win the Kentucky Derby, gamely holding off a wall of horses and scoring by half a length. The 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Protonico became the newest OBS millionaire with a 6-3-3-0 record for trainer Bob Baffert and earnings of $2,175,200. A two-time OBS graduate, he was sold as a yearling by Summerfield (Francis & Barbara Vanlangendonck), Agent, on behalf of breeder Gail Rice at the 2019 Winter Mixed Sale for $1,000.
He was then purchased for $35,000 by Gary Young on behalf of Zedan Racing Stables out of the Whitman Sales consignment at the 2020 June Sale after turning in an Under Tack three eighths in :33 flat, the sale’s co-fastest at the distance.
The catalog can be viewed via the OBS website at obssales.com. The website’s searchable and sortable master index provides links to under tack videos, pedigree and consignor information as well as pedigree updates occurring since the catalog was printed. It has also been updated to allow shortlist creation. A link to instructions can be found in the index header and a step by step tutorial is available in the index as well.
The iPad version of the entire catalog is 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. For information and downloads visit: equineline.com/SalesCatalogApp/.
