Led by 2020 graduate Medina Spirit’s Kentucky Derby (G1) triumph, OBS June Sale graduates have been in the headlines often since the beginning of the year.
Zedan Racing Stables Inc.’s Medina Spirit became the fourth OBS graduate to win the Kentucky Derby (G1), gamely holding off a wall of horses and scoring by half a length. The 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Protonico became the newest OBS millionaire with a 6-3-3-0 record for trainer Bob Baffert and earnings of $2,175,200. A two-time OBS graduate, he was sold as a yearling by Summerfield (Francis & Barbara Vanlangendonck), Agent, on behalf of breeder Gail Rice at the 2019 Winter Mixed Sale for $1,000. watch the auction ring video catalog page
He was then purchased for $35,000 by Gary Young on behalf of Zedan Racing Stables out of the Whitman Sales consignment at the 2020 June Sale after turning in an Under Tack three eighths in :33 flat, the sale’s co-fastest at the distance. watch the auction ring video watch his under tack video catalog page
