An open house with lunch will be held at 11 a.m. (CDT) Saturday at the Heritage Place Sales Pavilion on MacArthur Boulevard with the sale starting promptly at 1 p.m. The four horses all sold as yearlings during Labor Day weekend of 2012 in the Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale and were seized last fall.
