There are two ways to look at the Oct. 5 auction for Bobby Hurley's Devil Eleven Stables/Farm in scenic Ocala, Florida: 1) Fans can bid on a piece of Duke history or 2) Haters can finally finish squirrelboy off.
Named in honor of Hurley's jersey number during his famous career with the Duke University basketball team, the farm is a major asset in PNC's attempt to recover about $3.3 million in loans and fees. PNC Bank began foreclosure proceedings in late April. [Daily Racing Form]
If the farm is sold for less than what is owned, the judgment leaves the door open for PNC to try to recover any deficiency. [Ocala Star Banner]
