Bobby Hurley's old farm sold


Devil Eleven Farm, the foreclosed Florida Thoroughbred farm once owned by former Duke University and Sacramento Kings basketball player Bobby Hurley, has been sold.

The 140-acre property that Hurley and his wife, Leslie, bought for $3 million in 2006 brought just under $1.3 million on May 26. According to the Ocala Star-Banner, the buyer is Remeta Sky LLC, whose manager is Kansas veterinarian Dr. Karen Young.

In 2009, PNC Bank sued the Hurleys and their Devil Eleven Stable in a Kentucky court, alleging they defaulted on loans, and seized the couple's 12 shares in Songandaprayer. Hurley had paid $1 million for Songandaprayer, a son of Unbridled's Song, as a juvenile and campaigned him to win the Fountain of Youth in 2001. The 13-year-old horse currently stands at Walmac for an advertised $6,500 fee.

Last August, claiming about $3 million in unpaid loans, PNC Bank foreclosed on the Ocala farm.
