Vance stock to sell at Keeneland


The late Jeanne Vance's bloodstock will be dispersed this year, starting with 11 racing-age horses that the Eaton Sales agency will offer at Keeneland's April 2-year-old sale.

That first draft from Vance's stable will consist of juveniles and older horses of racing age by such stallions as A. P. Indy, Danzig, Deputy Minister, Fusaichi Pegasus, Kingmambo, Storm Cat, and Lemon Drop Kid, the 2000 champion older male raced by Vance and her husband Milton "Laddie" Dance, who died in December 2002. Jeanne Vance died on Dec. 15, 2003.

Trainer Bill Mott and Kevin Hartigan of Cashel Stud in Ocala, Fla., both of whom have some of the late Vance's horses, will send the stock to the sale.
