The penultimate session of the 2018 Keeneland January Horses of All Ages sale got underway Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. Hip numbers 782 – 1178 are scheduled to go through the sales ring.
Grade 2 winner Mrs McDougal, the final horse in the ring for Tuesday’s second session of Keeneland’s January Horses of All Ages Sale, became the sale’s highest-priced offering when she sold to Steven W. Young, agent, for $1.6 million. Mrs McDougal and a yearling colt from the first crop of 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah that sold for $1 million earlier on Tuesday are the most seven-figure horses sold at the January Sale since 2013.
Their sales contributed to a second consecutive day of strong trade at the January Sale. On Tuesday, Keeneland sold 229 horses for $15,036,900, up 35.96 percent from last year’s second session when 221 horses grossed $11,059,600. The average of $65,663 is 31.21 percent above $50,043 last year. The median of $25,000 remained unchanged from 2017.
Cumulatively, 415 horses have sold for $28,302,000, up 31.19 percent from $21,573,600 for 384 horses sold last year. The average of $68,198 increased 21.39 percent from $56,181 in 2017, and the median of $37,000 is 23.33 percent higher than $30,000 last year.
