Winsong plans to sell its horses


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Winsong Farms, owned by Jim and Alice Sapara, announced Wednesday that it will disperse some 40 Thoroughbreds at Keeneland's November breeding stock sale this year.

John Sikura's Hill 'n' Dale Sales Agency will handle the dispersal. Among the dozen mares on offer will be graded stakes winner Brushed Halory, an earner of more than $492,000. The sale will also feature racing stock, including Canadian stakes-placed Spy Hill (Phone Trick), and foals by Unbridled's Song, Dynaformer, and Red Ransom.

Jim Sapara said that the dispersal is the result of a May 7 fire at his mobile home manufacturing company, Winalta Inc., in Alberta, Canada. The fire was estimated to have caused more than $1 million in damage.

The Winsong Farms property, made up of a 50-acre broodmare division and a 40-acre yearling division in Versailles, Ky., also will be put on the market, through ERA Real Estate.
