The ninth annual Sporting Art Auction, a collaboration between Keeneland and Cross Gate Gallery of Lexington held Sunday afternoon at the Keeneland Sales Pavilion, grossed $1,908,015.

Topping the auction was Andre Pater's War and Peace, a pair of signed and dated pastels, sold for $115,000, including buyer premium.

Fishing on the Elkhorn, a signed oil by Kentucky artist Paul Sawyier, brought the second-highest price of $100,050.

Keeneland's portion of the auction proceeds will benefit its non-profit initiatives.
