Millionaire Tejano Run to Starlex in Kentucky

Roy K. Monroe, whose Tejano Run finished second in the 1995 Kentucky Derby (gr. I), will relocate the 10-year-old son of Tejano to his newly established Starlex Farm near Versailles, Ky. Tejano Run will be the first stallion at the 143-acre farm. Monroe purchased the Starlex acreage four years ago from Donna Moore and William Shatner and revamped it from a Saddlebred farm to one focused on standing and raising Thoroughbreds.

Tejano Run stood the past breeding season for a syndicate at John Sikura's Hill 'n' Dale Farms near Lexington. Monroe at the time owned 50% interest, and he recently bought all but two of the remaining shares. Tejano Run, who was produced from the Wavering Monarch mare Royal Run, is represented by three stakes winners this year, and ranks 11th on the second-crop sire list by 2002 progeny earnings.
