Actor Tom Selleck has been awarded more than $187,000 after a California jury found the actor was duped into buying a lame horse.

Selleck accused Del Mar equestrian Dolores Cuenca of trying to pass off a show horse with a medical condition as fit to ride in competitions.

The defense had argued that Selleck didn't check the veterinarian records of the 10-year-old Zorro.

The bulk of the San Diego County jury's award is for the price of the horse. The rest is to cover boarding costs. A second trial next week will determine how much Selleck should be paid in punitive damages.

Selleck is best known for his role on TV's "Magnum, P.I." in the 1980s.
