The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) will offer a Lexitonian 2023 breeding season for auction on Monday, Feb. 6 from 6-9 PM EST. Donated by Lexitonian’s trainer, Jack Sisterson, the offer entails a 2023 No Guarantee Season with a Breed Back. Standing at Lane’s End for $7,500 LFSN, the grade 1 winner’s first foals will arrive this year.
“He’s a horse who fights,” said trainer Jack Sisterson. “He has the talent, the will, and the heart. He’s a class act winning and placing second in multiple Grade 1 races. I’ve had a tremendous amount of confidence in him throughout his career because you can run him over any track, and he always knows what to do. Lexitonian brought a lot of great opportunities to our barn which we are forever grateful for— if it were not for the horses, we wouldn’t be here. I’m happy for this opportunity to give back to these wonderful horses.”
“This is such an exciting opportunity both for the TAA and breeders to have an opportunity to breed to such a talented and beautiful second year sire, Lexitonian, while supporting the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance,” said TAA Funding and Events Manager, Emily Dresen. “A special thank you to Jack Sisterson for donating his share in Lexitonian’s 2023 breeding season and to Lane’s End for their support.”
