Woodbine Entertainment and the Libfeld-Katz Breeding Partnership have released further details for the upcoming breeding auction on Wednesday, October 2 at the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale to raise funds for the Breeders Crown Charity Challenge.

A live auction of seven 2020 breedings to harness racing’s most notable stallions will begin at 6:45 p.m. at the Fasig-Tipton Sales Pavilion. The breedings have been listed as Hip 123-129 in the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale catalogue.

The second session of the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale will begin following the breeding auction on Wednesday, October 2.

A group of prominent owners and breeders have graciously donated a 2020 breeding to raise funds for the Breeders Crown Charity Challenge. A single 2020 breeding to the following stallions will be available:

Always B Miki
Captaintreacherous
Chapter Seven
Father Patrick
Muscle Hill
Sweet Lou

The Breeders Crown Charity Challenge features four teams consisting of a celebrity, a charity of their choosing and an award-winning three-year-old Standardbred. Each charity is receiving one per cent of their horse’s earnings from June 1, 2019 through October 26, 2019.

The challenge portion of the initiative features the teams competing to garner the most votes in a Facebook poll. The poll will close on October 26, 2019 and the team with the most votes will receive the largest portion of the funds raised by the breeding auction.

The funds raised for the Breeders Crown Charity Challenge are expected to exceed $100,000, which will mark the single largest donation by ‘Woodbine Cares.’

The four teams for the Charity Challenge are listed below:

Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons – Warrawee Ubeaut – Pinball Clemons Foundation
