Breault to Sell Breeding Stock at Auction August 1 Sires With Pleasure, Challenge Me Included in 38 Head to Be Sold LEXINGTON, Ky., June 26.— The Breeders Sales Company announced that it will conduct the complete dispersal sale of all thoroughbred horses owned by O. J. Breault of Paris, Kentucky and Chicago. Breault is retiring from the thoroughbred industry. The dispersal will be held on Friday morning, August 1, 1952 at the sales companys pavilion at the Keeneland Race Course. The sales company will conclude its annual "Sale of Selected Yearlings" the day preceding the Breault sale. This closed auction sale will include 38 horses among which are 15 broodmares, 14 yearlings, seven sucklings and two stallions. The broodmares, as a group, are young horses and have been bred this year to the two stallions to be sold, Challenge Me and With Pleasure. The latter was one of the outstanding bargains to come out of the auction ring in recent years. He was consigned to the 1944 Breeders Sales summer vendue by Hartland Farm and was purchased by Louis Rosenbaum of Cincinnati for ,600. He was subsequently sold to Brolite Stable, nom de course of the Breault runners, under whose colors he raced. With Pleasure won eight stakes races, was second or third in 15 other added money events and was retired to stud with earnings of 80,660. Challenge Me, now 11, was a top handicap performer, his best triumph coming in the Hollywood Gold Cup in which he set a new track record. Challenge Me retired from racing after winning 26,392. The seven sucklings and 14 yearlings are sired by the two home stallions with the exception of one Papa Redbird suckling and one Gallant Duke yearling. Listed for sale also are five Palomino horses and a sundry lot of farm and racing tack. Catalogues for the sale are now being com piled. The sale will be under the direction of William S. Evans, company general manager and the auctioneers will be Doc Bond and George Swinebroad.
