Lane's End will host a stallion season auction and open house to coincide with the upcoming Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Mixed Sale.
Breeders can submit bids for stallion seasons to all Lane's End stallions. The open house will take place from Feb. 6 to Feb. 9. Guests will be able to view stallions at the Stallion Barn from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and lunch will be served.
Despite already closed or nearly full books, seasons from stallions City Zip, The Factor , Honor Code , Liam's Map , and Twirling Candy will be offered. Exciting young stallions Union Rags and Noble Mission are also expected to draw much attention as their first crops begin to hit the track or sales ring in 2016.
"This event has done very well for the farm and breeders alike. We're very pleased to host the season auction again this year." said Bill Farish. "For those wanting to breed to our stallions, this is their chance to secure a season that may not be available, or potentially at a lower price. We'd like to encourage everyone to make it out to the stallion barn and see our stallions, including the four new grade I-winning millionaires, Tonalist , Mr Speaker , Honor Code, and Liam's Map."
Breeders can submit a bid form for each season with a stallion's name, bid amount, and contact information. The Lane's End Stallions Seasons team will follow up with bidders to inform them of the result.
Bidding will open Feb. 6 and close at 5 p.m. Feb. 10. Breeders may place their bids either in person at the open house, over the phone, or via email.
