Keeneland catalogs 4,026 for November breeding stock sale


The catalog for the 2014 Keeneland November breeding stock sale will feature 4,026 entries over 11 sessions.

The sale will take place Nov. 4-14, with the first two sessions beginning at 11 a.m. Eastern, and the remaining sessions commencing at 10 a.m. Eastern.

This year’s edition adds an extra day and 12 percent more entries than last year’s sale, which featured a catalog of 3,602 horses over 10 sessions. The 2014 catalog includes 2,082 broodmares and broodmare prospects, 1,589 weanlings, 350 horses of racing age and five stallions.

Catalogs will be available via Keeneland’s website beginning Tuesday, Sept. 30, while print copies will be mailed the week of Oct. 13.

“The November sale is the world’s most important sale of bloodstock,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Walt Robertson said. “Keeneland’s recent September yearling sale once again proved that horsemen from around the globe shop at Keeneland, and those and other horsemen will return for this premier offering of breeding stock.”

On Wednesday, Nov. 5, the session will conclude with an exclusive draft of mares bred to dual-hemisphere stallion Scat Daddy on Southern Hemisphere time. Scat Daddy, the leading sire this year in Chile, stands in Versailles, Ky. at Ashford Stud, which will consign the mares.

The Tuesday, Nov. 11 session will include horses of racing age, including the annual consignment from WinStar Racing, as agent.
