Keeneland Marathon Sale Starts Tonight
By tomorrow morning Australian time, early results will be starting to filter in for the world's biggest yearling sale. Keeneland September, a redoubtable source of quality bloodstock, runs over 12 days (excluding Friday 13 September) and features a massive catalogue of 3,908 yearlings, up more than 300 over 2012, still a far cry from 2008's edition where more than 5,500 horses were entered. Although many yearlings will be purchased to race, Keeneland September is also fertile ground for pinhookers who look to on-sell at subsequent 2YO breeze-up or ready-to-run sales.
