Keeneland Catalogues 4538 Yearlings For Sept Sale
Keeneland has announced that 4,538 yearlings have been catalogued for the 75th annual Keeneland September Yearling Sale to be held 10th to 23rd September. Offering the cream of the North American Thoroughbred yearling crop, the auction attracts major buyers from around the world and produces horses that compete at the highest level of racing. Among alumni that have won a total of 132 graded or group stakes in North America and internationally, are undefeated Triple Crown winner Justify and four-time Grade 1 winner Monomoy Girl. "The unparalleled strengths of the September Sale are the quantity of outstanding yearlings at all price levels and the deepest buying bench globally in the industry," Keeneland Vice President of Racing and Sales Bob Elliston said. "This year was an historic one for the September Sale with graduate Justify becoming racing's newest Triple Crown winner. This is another milestone in a sale with a record of consistently producing world-class athletes." Among the exciting highlights of the 2018 September Sale catalogue are the first yearlings by 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah. Catalogues will be available online from Tuesday 7 August.
