Keeneland September Yearling Sales
This sale attracts buyers from all over the world. Spectators welcome.
You are free to inspect any of the horses being sold. Simply go to the consignor's barn and ask that the horse be led out for inspection. Generally, horses are available for inspection two days prior to the sale. However, during the September and November sales, horses sold late in the week will not arrive on the grounds until the day before they are sold.
Everyone is welcome to attend Keeneland's sales, either as a buyer or a spectator. You do not need to buy a ticket, make a reservation or pay admission, though seats in the Sales Pavilion are reserved for buyers and sellers. Sale catalogs are free for you to pick up at any time during the sale.Keeneland is the world’s largest Thoroughbred auction house, with a history of selling more champions and stakes winners than any other sales company.
