Catalog for four-day auction now online
Keeneland has cataloged 1,509 horses – broodmares and broodmare prospects, yearlings and horses of racing age as well as stallions and stallion prospects – for the 66th January Horses of All Ages Sale, which will cover four sessions from Jan. 9-12, 2023.
The January Sale catalog now is available online at Keeneland.com. Print catalogs are scheduled to arrive in the mail the week of Dec. 19.
“Because the January Sale is held at the crossroads of racing and breeding seasons, the auction is a terrific opportunity for horsemen to plan for the future, whether they are breeders who seek broodmares and broodmare prospects for the coming breeding season or owners and trainers focused on the track and want to obtain newly turned yearlings and horses of racing age,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Tony Lacy said.
Denali Stud, agent, will handle 54 horses cataloged in the Dispersal of successful New York breeder Patricia Generazio. Among them are stakes winner Mischievous Dream along with Pure Bode and Marquet Legacy, who are all cataloged as racing or broodmare prospects.
The most recent graduate of the January Sale to excel at the highest level is Regal Glory, who captured the Matriarch (G1) on Dec. 4 for her third Grade 1 win of the year. In addition, stakes winners of 2022 who were sold as yearlings at the January Sale include Grade 1-winning juveniles And Tell Me Nolies (TVG Del Mar Debutante) and Blazing Sevens (Champagne) as well as Interstatedaydream (George E. Mitchell Black-Eyed Susan-G2 and Indiana Oaks-G3).
Each session of the January Sale begins at 10 a.m. ET. The schedule is as follows:
Book 1 – Monday-Tuesday, Jan. 9-10.
Book 2 – Wednesday-Thursday, Jan. 11-12.
The entire January Sale will be livestreamed at Keeneland.com and will be aired on the FanDuel Plus App. Scott Hazelton will report periodically on the first two sessions on FanDuel TV.
