The Kentucky-based Keeneland Association Inc.'s Web site, said: "Opening day yesterday at the world's largest horse sale grossed less than $25 million, a decline of 55 percent from the session last year."

John Ferguson, on behalf of Sheik Mohammed has paid an amount of $13.2 million for 30 horses until now during the first and second days of the two-week sale of 1-year- olds.

The colt, named Storm 'N Indian, that cost $2.05 million, was bought from Summer Wind Farm in Georgetown, Kentucky. Fleet Indian, which made $1.7 million, had 13 wins in
19 starts.

Ferguson said on Keeneland's Web site, "Fleet Indian was a champion and a star of a mare. The colt is very athletic with a great pedigree."
