OBS Spring Sale graduates have long been a major force at North American racetracks, with 21 horses topping the million dollar mark in earnings and eight horses winning Eclipse Awards. Since the beginning of 2013, 155 Spring Sale graduates have won or placed in 262 stakes, including 61 graded races.

Fifty-two stakes horses have already emerged from last year’s sale including 16 stakes winners. At the head of the class of 2013 is Spring Sale catalog cover girl Fashion Plate, who added the recent Santa Anita Oaks (G1) to her earlier victory in Santa Anita’s Las Virgenes Stakes (G1) in February. Racing for Arnold Zetcher LLC & Michael Tabor, the daughter of Old Fashioned was purchased by trainer Simon Callaghan for $340,000 out of the de Meric Sales. She has earned $459,250 to date.
