Keeneland has cataloged 1,516 horses – broodmares and broodmare prospects, yearlings and horses of racing age along with stallions and stallion prospects – for its 2022 January Horses of All Ages Sale, which will present four sessions from Jan. 10-13.
The January Sale catalog is available online at Keeneland.com. Print catalogs are scheduled to be delivered the week of Dec. 20.
“Given the dynamic markets we’ve seen in September and November, the January Sale will offer breeders another terrific opportunity to acquire quality broodmares and broodmare prospects in advance of the breeding season,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Tony Lacy said. “Additionally, horsemen with an eye toward the race track can shop a nice selection of short yearlings and horses of racing age to round out their orders.”
For the January Sale, Keeneland once again will offer online and phone bidding to accommodate buyers who cannot attend. More information for prospective buyers, including accessing the Keeneland Sales Portal, can be found by clicking here.
The four sessions of the January Sale all begin at 10 a.m. ET. The sale schedule is as follows:
Book 1 on Monday, Jan. 10 and Tuesday, Jan. 11.
Book 2 on Wednesday, Jan. 12 and Thursday, Jan. 13.
The entire November Sale will be livestreamed at Keeneland.com. TVG2 will feature live coverage of the first two days of the sale, and the entire sale will be shown on the Watch TVG App.
