Keeneland Revises September Yearling Format
In Kentucky, Keeneland officials released a "slightly revised format" for this year's flagship September Yearling Sale (beginning on Sunday 11 September):
- Book 1 remains the same (with a selected sale of approximately 200 yearlings during Sunday & Monday sessions);
- Book 2 will include approximately 900 yearlings selling in 3 sessions (Tuesday-Thursday) with roughly 300 horses per day in alphabetical order by dam; last year Book 2 featured 1,302 yearlings selling Tuesday-Friday with 325 yearlings per day.
- In 2011, Friday will be a "dark day" & Book 3 begins on Saturday, followed by daily sessions "through the remainder of the sale".
