John G. Sikura has added 205 acres to his Hill 'n' Dale Farm near Lexington. Sikura purchased undeveloped acreage on the Northwest corner of Hill 'n' Dale from Corman-McQueen Golf.
Sikura said he plans to build a complex on the acreage where he will prepare horses for auction. It is slated to include walkers and a round pen, and will have horses on it this spring.
"It's to set up our yearlings and have enough stalls to handle our overflow," he said. "It gives us long-term security that we have the land we need. It's a bit of a leap of faith--we're anticipating future needs and hopefully we can grow into the extra capacity."
