OHIO 2020 MIXED HORSE SALE HUGE SUCCESS!
The Ohio Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners (OTBO) 2020 Mixed Horse Sale on October 15, 2020 was a huge success! Over 150 people turned out on a Thursday afternoon amidst a festive setting at the historic Delaware County Fairgrounds to bid on what could be the next Best of Ohio winner! Previous OTBO Ohio Sale horses have gone on to win multiple stake races. 74 lots went through the auction ring bringing a total of $528,500. Most of the winning bidders were on site but several horses were purchased through the online and phone in bidding options.
The sale topper was Hip #12, the Ohio bred Mobil Solution. Sold by the Estate of Gerald Silver, the multiple stakes winning 5 yr. old gelding was acquired for $88,000 by winning bidder Carmine Agnello. Mobil Solution will now be trained by Jeff Skerrett.
Executive Director of the OTBO Mike Annechino said, “What a fantastic day for Ohio Racing. The Sales Committee of the OTBO, along with the support of the Ohio HBPA and all its horsemen and women, worked extremely hard to provide an attractive marketplace for both buyers and sellers. The horses that went through the ring looked spectacular and offered tremendous value in all categories. The excellent sales results prove once again that Racing in Ohio is the Best Bet in the business!”
The Ohio racing program offers year-round racing with 43 stake races for Ohio breds totaling over $3.6 million in annual purses.
