Judge orders sealed bid sale of Curlin

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A state judge has ordered a sealed bid
sale of 2007 Horse of the Year Curlin to settle a $42 million
judgment against the minority owners.
Special Judge Roger Crittenden did not set a firm timeline for
the sale in his order issued Thursday.
The ruling comes in a civil suit against Curlin's original
owners, attorneys William Gallion and Shirley Cunningham Jr., who
are accused of bilking clients out of millions in a $200 million
settlement over the diet-drug fen-phen.
The attorneys sold an 80 percent stake in Curlin to a group led
by Jess Jackson. Curlin is to race Saturday in the Jockey Club Gold
Cup, where Jackson hopes the horse can become the sport's all-time
money leader.
