Yearlings on block at Lone Star


Fasig-Tipton Texas will hold its summer yearling auction at Lone Star on Monday and Tuesday. There are 407 horses cataloged to the sale, about 100 more than last year. The increase is owed in part to the participation of more than 50 yearlings bred in neighboring Louisiana.

The auction sessions will start at 11 a.m. Central each day. Among the stallions with offspring in the sale are are Distorted Humor, Honour and Glory, Smoke Glacken, Alphabet Soup, Behrens, Valid Expectations, Open Forum, and Hadif.

* Lone Star will hold auditions for a bugler for its Breeders' Cup meet on Wednesday. The meet will open on Oct. 1.
