Lane's End buy Morning Line majority share

LANE'S END and Dixiana Farms have bought a majority interest in Morning Line, winner of the Grade 1 Carter Handicap in April.

The four-year-old son of Tiznow will remain in training with Nick Zito and stand at Lane's End in Kentucky on his retirement from racing.

Lane's End owner Will Farish said: "We are extremely impressed with Morning Line's race record overthe past year and feel he has the potential to make an outstanding sire with his striking good looks and exceptional pedigree."

A $700,000 Keeneland September yearling, Morning Line broke his maiden by eight lengths at Monmouth Park as a three-year-old en route to winning the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby and running a head second to Dakota Phone in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile later that season.

This year he has finished second to Giant Oak in the Grade 1 Donn Handicap as well as winning the Carter Handicap from Apriority and Yawanna Twist.

One of eight Grade 1 winners sired by dual Breeders' Cup Classic hero Tiznow, he is out of Indian Snow, a daughter of A.P. Indy and Grade 1 Alabama and Test Stakes winner November Snow.
