Keeneland has catalogued 4,476 horses for its 2015 November Breeding Stock Sale to be held Nov. 2-13, just two days after the Oct. 30-31 Breeders’ Cup World Championships. The catalog is currently available online and printed copies will go out Oct. 12.

“The intention of hosting the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland is to bring greater attention to Central Kentucky–the center of the Thoroughbred breeding industry in North America–and, therefore, by its proximity, be of direct benefit to the November Sale,” Keeneland President and CEO Bill Thomason said.

Horses cataloged for the 2015 sale include 2,610 broodmares and broodmare prospects, 1,719 weanlings, 130 horses of racing age, and 17 stallions and stallion prospects. Horses of racing age will be offered Monday, Nov. 9, and Tuesday, Nov. 10, and include the annual consignment from WinStar Racing, agent.

This year’s sale will feature the dispersals of Regis Farms and Northwest Farms. Consigned by Three Chimneys Farm, the 41-horse Regis Farms dispersal includes 15 broodmares, six weanlines and 20 horses of racing age, all to be offered without a reserve. The highlights of the dispersal include “TDN Rising Star” and GI Kentucky Oaks runner-up Shook Up (Tapit) and Canadian champion Sealy Hill (Point Given), who sells in foal to Medaglia d’Oro.

Bruce Gibbs Greenfield Farm will oversee the

42-horse Northwest Farms consignment, which includes MSW Stopshoppingdebbie (Curlin), who is in foal to Medaglia d’Oro; and SW Goin to the Window (Tapit), who sells in foal to War Front.

Other broodmare standouts entered for Keeneland November include 2014 Champion Juvenile Filly Take Charge Brandi (Giant’s Causeway); recent GI Rodeo Drive S. heroine Photo Call (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}); and fellow Grade I winners Don’t Tell Sophia (Congaree), Hard Not to Like (Hard Spun and Sam’s Sister (Brother Derek); and Canadian Horse of the Year Lexie Lou (Sligo Bay {Ire}).

The sale’s first two sessions, which comprise Book 1, will begin at 11 a.m. ET. The remaining sessions start at 10 a.m. The entire sale will be streamed on Keeneland’s website.
