Numerous Horses Share Quickest Times at OBS April 16

Five fillies shared the fastest one-furlong time of :09 4/5 during the fifth under-tack session April 16 that precedes the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Spring 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale. Two males were co-fastest over a quarter-mile timed in :20 3/5.

One more day of the breezes remains April 17 before the largest juvenile auction in the world gets underway April 20-23. 

The aforementioned colts differ in appearance, with Hip 925 being a bay by Not This Time   and Hip 996 a gray son of Valiant Minister  .

Hip 925 is out of In a Jif , an Indiana-bred Saintly Look  mare who captured the Holiday Inaugural Stakes at Turfway Park vs. open company in 2014. The dam, related to two other black-type horses, has one other foal of racing age in Stoked  (Orb  ), who has placed in one of seven starts with earnings of $4,631.

Not This Time, who stands for $40,000 at Taylor Made Stallions in Kentucky, was the third-ranked first-crop sire of 2020 and is ranked second this year among second-crop stallions.

Hip 996 doesn’t have black type in the first two dams of his pedigree, but farther within his family are Canadian champions Apelia  and Saoirse . His dam, the Unbridled’s Song mare La Nonna , placed in one of eight races and retired with earnings of $4,705.

Valiant Minister, another gray, stands at Bridlewood Farm in Florida for $3,000. By Candy Ride  , Valiant Minister won his only start for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert in 2017. He entered stud in 2018.

Pick View consigns Hip 925, while S G V Thoroughbreds consigns Hip 996.

The five that shared the fastest eighth of :09 4/5 are: 

The under tack show continues Saturday at 8 a.m. ET with Hips 1015-1271 set to breeze.
