Ohio Fall Mixed Sale To Take Place Oct. 15

The Ohio Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners (OTBO) Mixed Sale is scheduled to kick-off at the Delaware County Fairgrounds just outside of Columbus, Ohio on Friday Oct. 15 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern.

Breeders, owners and consignors have come together to catalog 94-plus total entrants, making this OTBO sale the largest in several years. The complete catalog can be found at otbo.com.

The greatest portion of the catalog is populated with future stars of the Ohio-racing program (both accredited and registered), with 51 total Ohio-bred yearlings, 16 juveniles and 11 weanlings offered. The Ohio-bred yearlings offered are highlighted by hot Kentucky-based stallions such as Dialed In, Liam’s Map and first crop sire Army Mule, and Ohio-based stallions such as Itsmyluckyday, National Flag, Fort Larned and 2020 Ohio Stallion of the Year, Mobil.

The offerings include “lucky” Hip 13, Storm of Nineteen, a 2-year-old registered Ohio-bred filly by Get Stormy that is a half-sister to the great Ohio stakes fixture, Altissimo, who himself is a 10-time stakes winner (nine in Ohio and one in open company);  Hip 17, Be True, a multiple stakes- producing mare by Shakespeare that is in foal to the late Ohio-stallion Danza, and Hip 18, her yearling Ohio-bred filly by Mshawish.

Hip 28, a 2-year-old colt by Oxbow that is a half-brother to perhaps the most famous recent Ohio bred (now a stallion), Rivers Run Deep, is another with historic ties. Hip 60 is an acccredited Ohio yearling colt by Awesome Patriot who is the sire of Bella Sofia, a four-time winner of over $542,000 this year including the Grade 1 Longines Test Stakes and most recently the G2 Gallant Bloom Handicap at Belmont Park on Sept. 26.

“The overall talent offered in this OTBO Mixed Sale catalog will almost certainly bring similar energy seen at the Keeneland Sept Yearling Sale,“ said Ohio-based bloodstock agent Tony Fischbach of Donnybrook Bloodstock.  “The quality of this year’s Ohio-bred yearlings is well-above what we’ve seen in recent years…which shows the commitment of Ohio’s breeders to breed better and better racehorses.”

In recognition of the growing success of the OTBO sale, a new race has been created. The inaugural edition of the OTBO Sales Graduate Stake will be run on March 5 at Mahoning Valley Racetrack. The race is open to all Ohio-bred/accredited 3-year-olds who passed through any sale from 2019 forward, including the 2-year-olds entered this year. The purse is an estimated $50,000 and will be six furlongs.

Online bidding will be available. For more information and a full catalog, visit otbo.com.
