Keeneland, A Historic Racetrack with World Famous Horse Auctions

By
Real Estate Agent with Rector Hayden, Lexington, Ky
Horse Sales at Keeneland in Lexington are Worth Millions"Looking" sold for $340,000.


The November horse sales at Keeneland are something everyone should experience.  Knowing that most of you cannot attend I have included some links to help you get a virtual taste of this world class event.  It is no exaggeration to call it "world class."  There is probably not another place in the world, outside of Wall Street, to see so much money change hands so quickly with people from all around the world.

This first link is to a live auction
.  I am not sure if they repeat these during the hours the auction is closed.  Warning, if you are a horse lover you will be more than tempted to take a trip to Lexington and observe these auctions.  

Royal Delta, the winner of the Breeder's Cup Ladies' Classic last Saturday has been the highlight of the sales so far.  She was purchased for $8.5 million by Florida -based owner Ben Leon. He is reported to be planning to continue racing Royal Delta before having her become a broodmare.

I often tease my wife that I someday want to buy a horse.  She usually gives me an affection scowl.  My grandfather was a horse trainer, my dad was a horse trainer and I was raised with horses.  I was never partricularly enamored with these graceful creatures as a child.  However, as I get older there is something romantic that really draws me to the horses.  A beautiful colt sold at Keeneland Auction November 10,2011

You can take a drive through the farms around Lexington and see hundreds of these majestic creatures frolicking in the bluegrass fields.  Come and visit Lexington and I will presonally take you on a driving tour.

I have some great memories of going to the races at Keeneland when I lived in southern Ohio. Do they still let the race unfold without a track announcer?
