The Ocala Breeders’ Sale Company has rescheduled its 2020 Spring and June Sales of 2-Year Olds in Training in response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
“As we all continue to deal with the current circumstances,” said OBS director of sales Tod Wojciechowski, “we need to balance a sense of social responsibility with providing our consignors the best opportunity to market their horses and give buyers the best place to obtain them.”
The Spring Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training has been moved to Tuesday through Friday, June 9 – 12, with the Under Tack Show set for Sunday through Saturday, May 31 – June 6. Each Under Tack session will begin at 7:30 a.m. The catalog will stay intact with the original horses hip-numbered for the sale.
The June 2-Year-Olds and Horses of Racing Age Sale is now scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday, July 14 – 17 with entries closing May 4. The Under Tack Show will be held Monday, July 6 through Saturday, July 11. The Under Tack sessions will all begin at 7:30 a.m.
In an effort to provide another opportunity to buy and sell 2-year-olds, OBS is considering adding a 2-year-olds in training session to the October Yearling Sale, presently scheduled for Oct. 6 – 9.
