Keeneland Waives Piroplasmosis Testing Requirement

Keeneland buyers and consigners should note that the Kentucky Department of Agriculture has waived the requirement for equine piroplasmosis testing for horses entered in Keeneland's 2011 January horses of all ages sale.

Keeneland's 2011 January horses of all ages sale begins Jan.10 and continues through Jan.14. Sessions begin at 10 a.m. each day and will be streamed live at
