Book 1 Wrap-Up from the 2020 Keeneland November Sale

The first session of the Keeneland November Sale featured eight seven-figure horses, including the Book 1 topper: four-time graded stakes winner Concrete Rose, who sold for $1.95 million to Larry Best's OXO Equine.

OXO Equine's Larry Best took home the top two lots Monday during the lone Book 1 session of the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale. Early in the day he went to $1.9 million for Indian Miss (Indian Charlie) (hip 32), the dam of champion sprinter Mitole (Eskendereya) and last Friday's GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile runner-up Hot Rod Charlie (Oxbow), in foal to Into Mischief and from the Hill 'n' Dale consignment; and towards the end of the session he paid $1.95 million for GISW turfer Concrete Rose (Twirling Candy), offered as hip 216 by Lane's End on behalf of Ashbrook Farm and BBN Racing.

Keeneland continues to offer the expanded bidding options it introduced for the Keeneland September Yearling Sale brought about by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and 62 bids were made over the internet Monday with over $6 million in purchases made online for nine horses.
