Horses won't be the only pretty things for sale at the yearling auction at Saratoga Springs, N.Y., next month.
Abstract paintings, some made by the sires of those yearlings, will be exhibited at the Cross Gate Gallery in the Fasig-Tipton Sales Pavilion. Sales of the 23 "Moneighs," as the paintings are known, will raise money for ReRun, a Thoroughbred adoption program.
Works by Cigar, Fleet Indian, Flower Alley, Funny Cide, Lido Palace, Point Given and the late A.P. Jet are among those available. The paintings are made by the horses, using their muzzles, whiskers, hooves and tails, although some artists — such as Funny Cide and Cigar — use a paintbrush.
