Pun, a half-brother to world champion and 2000 Illinois Horse of the Year Pleasac 4, 1:53 ($2,481,758) and from the first crop by International Chip 2, 1:57, topped the Land of Lincoln yearling sale at Walker Standardbreds Farm in Sherman, Ill., Sunday (Aug. 15) afternoon. Making the winning bid was USTA president Phil Langley.

Pun was one of 140 yearlings who sold at the annual yearling sale just a few miles north of the Illinois State Fairgrounds during the fair’s day off from racing. Gross sales were $1,725,900, down 8.7 percent from last year when two fewer yearlings were sold. The average price of $12,327 was off 10 percent from last year’s average of $13,712.
