For almost three-quarters of a century Keeneland has been auctioning off horses in the fall.
The September yearling sales is regarded globally as the premiere sales event.
Monday marks the start of 12 sessions of sales running through September 23rd.
Keeneland Vice President of Racing and Sales Bob Elliston says the September Sale is the primary source of champions and graded stakes winners year after year.
Keeneland officials say, each year the fall yearling sales at Lexington’s historic track produce more horses that do well in the world’s most important races than all other North American sales companies combined.
A revised week one format includes the debut of the September Sale Bonus Program that offers sellers and owners the opportunity to earn cash rewards.
