Lexington has another rare white thoroughbred

LEXINGTON, KY (AP) - There's another white thoroughbred running around in central Kentucky.

Chief White Fox is the latest of only a few to have descended from the founding line at Lexington's Patchen-Wilkes Farm.

He won't start training to race for another year, but his color means his market value is around $40,000, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Pedigree specialist Tim Holland says white thoroughbreds are mostly in demand for their beauty as show horses.
