The June Sale is the final juvenile sale on the 2012 OBS sales calendar.  OBS juvenile graduates put on a rousing show on the Belmont Stakes undercard, with Trinniberg and Currency Swap running one-two in the Woody Stephens Stakes (G2), reversing the finish of  last summer’s Hopeful Stakes (G1) at Saratoga. Recent graded stakes winning June graduates include May Day Rose, Shkspeare Shaliyah and grade one winner Giant Ryan.  OBS juvenile graduates include 2011 Breeders’ Cup winners Stephanie’s Kitten, Secret Circle and champion Musical Romance. The roster of outstanding OBS juveniles also takes in champion Blind Luck, along with multiple grade one winners Ask the Moon, Plum Pretty, Turbulent Descent and Weemissfrankie. OBS juvenile graduate I’ll Have Another just provided the perfect lead-in to June, flirting with history after winning the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Preakness (G1).
