White Prince, whose $60,000 price topped the fifth session of the Keeneland January horses of all ages auction in Lexington Jan. 16, did not go to a new home. The transaction was voided because the buyer had not established credit at the level at which the white yearling colt was sold, according to Keeneland vice president Harvie Wilkinson.

White Prince’s breeder, Warren Rosenthal, “very graciously agreed” to take back the colt to settle the matter, Wilkinson said Jan. 17.

Alex Hernandez signed White Prince's  sale ticket for Florida pinhooker Christy Whitman, who said, in a telephone interview, that she planned to resell the Devil His Duecolt at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co. August yearling auction.

Rick Trontz of Hopewell Farm consigned White Prince to the Keeneland January sale for Rosenthal, who owns Patchen Wilkes Farm near Lexington.
