Keeneland September Sale Going Strong

A day after the Keeneland September yearling sale topped its 2010 gross with five days to go, the ninth day of selling was up over last year. And the importance of that development goes far beyond the numbers.


“The sale is far enough along now, and I think it’s a piece of good news for an industry that is desperate for good news,” Keeneland president Nick Nicholson said Sept. 20. “It shows the power and depth of the game itself, and shows there are people out there that really want to play this game of breeding and racing Thoroughbreds.


“I thought this week also was a reminder that the product Kentucky is raising is a good product. It’s respected around the world, and it’s good we’re being reminded of that.
