Record Keeneland catalog


The Keeneland Association's January mixed sale catalog will comprise a record 2,508 horses in 2006. The auction will run from Jan. 9-15 in Lexington, Ky., at Keeneland's sale pavilion.

The 2006 catalog will offer 435 more horses than the previous record of 2,073 horses at the 2005 sale. As a result, the 2006 auction will be one day longer than this year's edition.

The 2006 catalog consists of 1,290 broodmares and broodmare prospects, 924 yearlings, 268 racing-age horses, and 22 stallions or stallion prospects. Four stallion shares also will be up for bid at the sale.

Young sires in the catalog with first foals born in 2005 include Aldebaran, Century City, Harlan's Holiday, Hold That Tiger, Johar, Kafwain, Mineshaft, Posse, Proud Citizen, Sky Mesa, and Vindication.
