Live racing returns to the OBS on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
Two sprint stakes for OBS Sale graduates headline the day. Free nominations to both races close on Tuesday, Nov. 12. The position on the calendar provides horsemen a stakes opportunity before the kickoff of the Gulfstream Park Championship Meeting and the opening of Tampa Bay Downs.
The two OBS stakes are non-wagering events, but there will be pari-mutuel wagering available on eight additional races. Entries will be taken on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
The OBS Sprint and the OBS Filly and Mare Sprint are for three-year-olds and upward. Both races will be run over six furlongs, each with a guaranteed purse of $125,000, restricted to OBS graduates.
The eight pari-mutuel races will feature quarter horse races for 2-year-olds as well as for three years old and upward at distances from 220 yards to 440 yards. Up to four thoroughbred maiden and starter allowance races may be used as substitute races. Purses range from $4,000 to $7,000 with all starters guaranteed a minimum of $200.
