LEXINGTON, KY (Sept. 25, 2014) – Keeneland has cataloged 4,026 horses for its 2014 November Breeding Stock Sale, to be held Nov. 4-14. Thoroughbred breeders from around the globe will attend the sale to acquire broodmares in foal to the world’s leading stallions and recently retired stakes-winning fillies ready to become broodmares.

The total includes 2,082 broodmares and broodmare prospects, 1,589 weanlings, 350 horses of racing age and five stallions.

“The November Sale is the world’s most important sale of bloodstock,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Walt Robertson said. “Keeneland’s recent September Yearling Sale once again proved that horsemen from around the globe shop at Keeneland, and those and other horsemen will return for this premier offering of breeding stock.”

The November Sale includes mares in foal to 208 of the world’s most prominent stallions and exciting young sires, as well as 196 weanlings. To see a list of sires that will be represented at the sale, visit Keeneland.com.

On Tuesday, Nov. 11, the session will include horses of racing age, including the annual consignment from WinStar Racing, agent.
