Mitole Colt Tops OBS January Sale Tuesday

Hip 87 | Judit Seipert

A short yearling by Mitole (hip 87) brought top price of $95,000 from Calumet Farm during the first session of the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's January Winter Mixed Sale Tuesday. Bred by Kathie Maybee, the colt was consigned by Danielle Loya's Silver Oaks Farm. He is out of Wild Hickory (Terrell), a half-sister to multiple graded winner Alert Bay (City Zip). The colt RNA'd for $45,000 at last year's Fasig-Tipton November sale.

During Tuesday's consignor preferred section, 75 horses grossed $1,738,400 for an average of $23,179 and a median of $16,000. Those figures were down from the 2023 section which saw 99 horses sell for $2,696,700 for an average of $27,239 and a median of $20,000.

With 30 horses from the consignor preferred section not sold, the buy-back rate was 28.6%.

In the horses of racing age section, 26 horses sold for $505,000. The average was $19,423 and the median was $11,000. The top-priced racing age offering was an unnamed 3-year-old filly by Enticed (hip 227), who sold as a racing/broodmare prospect for $70,000 to Emerald Sales as agent for K E M Stables. Consigned by Gutierrez Sales, the dark bay is out of Pyrite Storm (Formal Dinner). Richard Gutierrez purchased her for $32,000 at the 2022 Fasig-Tipton October sale.

The OBS Winter sale concludes with an open session beginning at noon Wednesday.
