Keeneland January catalog now online


The catalog for the 2014 Keeneland January horses of all ages sale is now online, featuring 1,590 offerings.

The four-day sale will be held Jan. 6-9, one day shorter than last year, at the Keeneland sales pavilion in Lexington, Ky., with sessions beginning each day at 10 a.m. Eastern. Print editions of the Keeneland January catalogs will be mailed the week of Dec. 16.

The sale comprises 545 broodmares, 154 racing or broodmare prospects, 615 yearlings, 272 horses of racing age, and four stallions. Among the racing or broodmare prospects of note cataloged for the sale is the 4-year-old Alphabet Soup filly Egg Drop, winner of the Grade 1 Matriarch Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park on Dec. 1.

The sale also features short yearlings from first-crop sires including Archarcharch, Gio Ponti, and Uncle Mo, among others.

This year’s January catalog is 16 percent smaller than the 2013 edition, which featured 1,893 horses over five days of selling.

The 2013 Keeneland January sale moved 1,105 horses for revenues of $45,207,300, making it the ninth-highest-grossing edition in the auction’s history, helped by the dispersal of Issam Fares’s Fares Farm. That figure was an improvement of 19 percent compared with the 2012 gross. The average price of $40,912 marked an eight percent improvement, while the median remained level at $15,000.
