Lane’s End to host open house, stallion silent auction


Lane’s End in Versailles, Ky., will host a stallion open house and silent auction to coincide with the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky winter mixed sale, from Saturday, Feb. 8 through Monday, Feb. 10.

Guests will be able view the stallions at the farm’s stallion barn from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern and lunch will be served.

Additionally, breeders will be able to submit sealed bids for stallion seasons to each of the farm’s 17 stallions. Despite several already closed or nearly-full books, at least one season from each member of the Lane’s End stallion roster will be made available. Bidding begins Feb. 8 at 10 a.m. and ends Feb. 10 at 5 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity for breeders.” said Bill Farish, “For breeders wanting to breed to our stallions, including those with closed books, this is their chance to secure a season that may not be available, or potentially at a discounted price.  It should be exciting.”
