LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Officials at Keeneland say they are making
changes to the September Yearling Sale in an effort to improve
The September Yearling Sale is the largest of its kind and a
barometer for the thoroughbred market.
The Courier-Journal reported Friday that Keeneland officials
also want to make the two-week auction less of a grind for buyers
Changes include moving the sale's first two days Sunday and
Monday nights rather than from Monday and Tuesday days, and
featuring fewer yearlings. The sale's first two days are when the
best horses are sold.
Keeneland officials say their goal is to create some of the
social atmopshere of the old July Selected sale that was last held
in 2002 before Keeneland focused its yearling sales in September.
