A total of 1,588 horses have been cataloged for the upcoming Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale, which will be held in Lexington Jan. 11-14. On offer at the four-day auction will be 808 broodmares and broodmare prospects, 697 short yearlings, 78 horses of racing age and five stallion or stallion prospects.

The catalogue features horses from the dispersals of Sam-Son Farm, the late Paul Pompa, Jr., and Spry Family Farm.

Sam-Son Farm, a multiple Eclipse Award- and Sovereign Award-winning breed-to-race operation based in Ontario, will offer 21 broodmares in foal to Accelerate, American Pharoah, Bernardini, Candy Ride (Arg), City of Light, Distorted Humor, Hard Spun, Into Mischief, Kantharos, Kitten's Joy, Lookin At Lucky, Malibu Moon, Munnings, Omaha Beach, Speightstown, Street Sense, Twirling Candy, Uncle Mo and War Front.

Hill 'n' Dale Sales Agency, agent, will handle 46 horses cataloged in the Dispersal of Spry Family Farm, including 11 mares in foal to stallions Ghostzapper, Speightstown, Maclean's Music, Midshipman and Take Charge Indy; 10 foals of 2020 by Creative Cause, Ghostzapper, Maclean's Music and Tapiture; nine foals of 2019 by Lea, Maclean's Music and Temple City; and

16 racing or broodmare prospects by such sires as Uncle Mo, Frankel (GB), Invincible Spirit (Ire), Medaglia d'Oro and Kodiac (GB).

The 39 horses in the Complete Dispersal of the late Paul P. Pompa Jr., Lane's End, agent, are broodmares, foals of 2020, horses of racing age and broodmare or stallion prospects.

“This year's January sale is especially deep because of the Sam-Son, Paul Pompa and Spry Family Farm dispersals, which offer one-of-a-kind opportunities to obtain breeding and racing stock from established, successful operations,” Keeneland President-Elect and Interim Head of Sales  Shannon Arvin said. “These dispersals further enhance the January sale's reputation for being a source of quality broodmares prior to breeding season and a popular market for newly turned yearlings and horses of racing age.”

Each session of the January sale will begin at 10 a.m. ET. Keeneland will continue to offer online and phone bidding to enable buyers to participate in the January sale remotely while employing onsite COVID-19 protocols similar to those used during its two recent auctions.
