Amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that created an ever-changing landscape for Thoroughbred sales across the country, seven Maryland-breds went through the ring at Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 2020 Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training, with six selling, three for six-figures. The sale, rescheduled from its original dates in April, was held June 9-12 in Ocala, Fla.
