Keeneland January sale catalogs 1,892 horses


The catalog for the 2017 Keeneland January horses of all ages sale is now available online, with 1,892 horses on offer.

The five-day auction will take place Jan. 9-13, with sessions beginning each day at 10 a.m. Eastern.

This year’s catalog includes 726 broodmares, 147 broodmare prospects, 732 yearlings, 280 horses of racing age, and seven stallions and stallion prospects.

“The January sale traditionally is a solid market for broodmares, broodmare prospects, and short yearlings, which we expect will be popular because not all buyers filled their orders when weanlings were offered at the November breeding stock sale,” said Bob Elliston, Keeneland’s vice president of racing and sales. “The January sale also affords breeders the opportunity to replenish or upgrade their broodmare bands with many quality mares in foal to top stallions and numerous young broodmare prospects from which to choose.”

A total of 173 covering sires are represented by mares in the Keeneland January catalog, including first-book stallions American Pharoah, Bayern, Carpe Diem, Commissioner, Competitive Edge, Constitution, Conveyance, Danza, Daredevil, Dramedy, Fast Anna, Golden Ticket, Hampton Court, Honor Code, Imagining, Jack Milton, Karakontie, Lea, Liam’s Map, Medal Count, Mr Speaker, Normandy Invasion, Palace, Race Day, Summer Front, Tapiture, The Big Beast, Tonalist, We Miss Artie, and Wicked Strong.

Print copies of the catalog will be mailed the week of Dec. 19.
