| Hold Keeneland Sales Under Tent in Paddock LEXINGTON, Ky., June 18.— The thoroughbred yearling sales, scheduled for August 9 to 11 at Keeneland, will be held under a tent erected in the paddock at the race course, Thomas B. Cromwell, representative of the Fasig-Tipton Company, stated today. Cromwell and Hal Price Head-ley, president of Keeneland, inspected tine site and decided it advisable to hold the auctions at that location. The "big top" to be used will cover an area 40 feet by 70 feet and will be the same tent used at the Audley Farm and Kilmer sales in Virginia. The 11 Keeneland barns between the paddock and the track kitchen will house the yearlings and can accommodate as many as 352. Government transportation authorities have made known that taxi-cab service will be available between Lexington and Keeneland during the ! sales.
