From Nov. 8-20
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 4, 2016) — Keeneland has cataloged 4,762 horses for its 2016 November Breeding Stock Sale, to be held Nov. 8-20. November Sale catalogs are available on Keeneland.com. Print catalogs will be mailed the week of Oct. 17.
“Keeneland’s November Breeding Stock Sale is the largest sale of its kind in the world and is remarkable because of the unparalleled diversity and depth in its offerings,” Keeneland Vice President of Racing and Sales Bob Elliston said. “Breeders from around the world will be here to obtain broodmares and broodmare prospects to add to or establish their programs, while others from an equally wide range of locations will set their sights on the sale’s weanlings and horses of racing age.”
Last year, the November Sale featured the $6 million sale of champion Take Charge Brandi, who was the most expensive Thoroughbred sold at public auction anywhere around the world. A North American record price for a weanling was set at the sale for the second year in a row when a filly by War Front out of Grade 1 winner Take Charge Lady (Take Charge Brandi’s second dam) sold for $3.1 million.
Horses of racing age will be offered from Nov. 14-15 and will feature the consignments of WinStar Racing, agent, and Mill Ridge Sales, agent, as well as horses from the Conquest Stables dispersal. Among the 2016 stakes winners sold at the November Sale are Grade 1 winner Haveyougoneaway and Grade 3 winners Barbados, Photo Call (IRE) and Scuba.
