"Liz" Lunn, owner of Llangollen Farm, whose colt Gone Fishin was one of the principal pre-race contenders for Saturdays Kentucky Derby, announced here that she is selling her California breeding stock and will henceforth do all of her breeding at her farm in Upperville, Virginia. Mrs. Lunn, whosefilly Galarullah finished second in Fridays Kentucky Oaks, said that she would put all of her California bloodstock, excepting the Argentine stallion, Endeavour Uā€ž sire of Porterhouse and Gone Fishin, on the block at Pomona, Calif, on June 30. Included in this group will be about 30 broodmares, many of whom are in foal to Endeavour H., and the stallions Bulletproof, Singing Step and invade. Endeavour II., who has been standing in California the past several seasons, will be returned to Upperville where he started his stud career and where he sired both Porterhouse and Gone Fishin. "With over 300 head of horses scattered throughout the country," said "Sirs. Lunn, "I have to cut down and I have to concentrate my breeding operation to one place. It is too much to keep two such establishments as my places in Virginia and California going. I love Virginia. Most of my friends are there, so that is why I have chosen Upperville. I will continue to race in California, however." Fasig-Tipton Co. will handle both vendues, catalogues for which are expected to be. available shortly.
