The sixth and final session of the under tack show for the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's 2021 Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds was delayed by weather Saturday morning, but is now underway. OBS issued a press release saying that the situation is being closely monitored and it is anticipated that conditions will be favorable for the session to begin at 9:30 a.m. Further changes will be announced if necessary, the sales company said.

The National Weather Service issued a “significant weather advisory” for the area.

“At 7:23 a.m. EDT, National Weather Service meteorologists were tracking strong thunderstorms along a line extending from 8 miles southwest of Rainbow Lakes Estates to near Juniper Springs,” the advisory reads. “Movement was east at 45 mph. Small hail and minor flooding due to heavy rainfall is possible with these storms.”

The sale is scheduled to begin Tuesday, April 20 and continue through Friday, April 23 with each session beginning at 10:00 a.m.

The Under Tack Show is being streamed live via the OBS website at obssales.com and on the TDN website.
