Keeneland chosen for Curlin sale

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Thoroughbred auction house Keeneland says
it has been picked to handle the sale of a minority share of
Curlin, the richest American racehorse of all time.
The deadline is Nov. 5 for potential buyers to submit a sealed
bid for the 20 percent stake in the 2007 Horse of the Year and
Breeders' Cup Classic winner.
A judge had ordered the minority share be sold to help satisfy a
$42 million civil judgment against the horse's minority owners,
William Gallion and Shirley Cunningham.
The 80 percent majority interest, held by Jess Jackson, is not
affected by the sale.
Curlin will attempt to defend his title in the Breeders Cup
Classic later this month. The horse recently passed Cigar by
reaching $10.2 million in lifetime earnings in just two years on
the track.
