Keeneland Press Release

LEXINGTON, Ky.— Keeneland has announced that 18 horses have been supplemented to its April Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale, which will be held Sunday, April 30, and begins at 4 p.m. ET.

Keeneland will accept approved supplemental entries to the April Sale until the sale date.

Click here for the enhanced digital catalog on Keeneland.com. The catalog, also available through the Equineline Sales Catalog iPad app, includes pedigrees, Equibase past performances and race videos, Daily Racing Form past performances, and Ragozin and Thoro-Graph figures. Consignors may upload photographs and walking videos.

Because of the changeable nature of horses of racing age catalogs, consignments will be stabled and a barn order list produced and distributed around Monday, April 24, when the catalog – including supplements – is close to finalized.

A printed catalog for the 80 horses initially cataloged in the sale is available at Keeneland. A supplemental catalog will be available just prior to the sale.
