The total number of horses cataloged for the 2008 November Sale exceeds last year by 294 and includes 2,893 broodmares, 2,267 weanlings, 542 horses of racing age, and seven stallions.

"Keeneland's November Sale offers the largest and most diverse selection of quality breeding stock in the world," said Geoffrey Russell, Keeneland's director of sales. "Top domestic and foreign buyers alike are attracted to the deep pool of stakes-winning and stakes-producing fillies and mares, as well as weanlings by some of the hottest stallions around."

Among the 542 horses of racing age are talented runners consigned by WinStar Racing, agent; Zayat Stables LLC; Woodford Racing (Lane's End, agent); Eaton Sales, agent; and Shadwell Farm.

"The quality of these offerings from these and other consignments has made this sale an important stop for buyers looking for top quality, proven racehorses that are ready to perform at the highest levels of racing anywhere in the world," Russell noted.
