I) Fusaichi Pegasus, are selling five mares they own together during the Keeneland November auction.

In the movie business, sequels usually don't measure up to the originals. But Thoroughbred breeder Arthur B. Hancock III, owner of Stone Farm near Paris, Ky., is hoping a 2003 foal he has nicknamed Superman II is every bit as successful as a 1997 colt Hancock dubbed Superman, later named Fusaichi Pegasus.
A half-sister to Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Fusaichi Pegasus was foaled Feb. 16 at Arthur B. Hancock III's Stone Farm near Paris, Ky.
