The OBS March Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training, which will feature a Horse Fever statue called “Clockwork Fury” as the last hip to sell on Tuesday, Mar. 16, will now accept phone bids on the unusual offering. It had previously been announced that bidding must take place only in person or via agent/proxy. Potential bidders can now register for phone bidding and will be called just before Clockwork Fury enters the ring. Unlike with live hips, no pre-qualification is necessary.
Clockwork Fury has greeted visitors at Journeyman Stud in Ocala for the past decade and is being donated to raise funds for Florida Thoroughbred Charities (FTC) and Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA). The statue is expected to sell between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., with coverage starting at 4:00 p.m. on the Horse Fever event page.
