Keeneland Moves Date of April Sale

Keeneland will hold its 2023 April Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale this year on Sunday, Apr. 30 beginning at 4 p.m. ET. Entry deadline for the print version of the April Sale catalog is Monday, Apr. 3 and approved supplemental entries will be accepted until the sale.

Keeneland successfully held its April Selected Sale last year on closing day of the Spring Meet, and the sale will return to that position on the calendar in 2024. This year’s move to Sunday is a one-time event to avoid conflict with the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s Spring Sale.

The April Selected Sale feeds off the energy and excitement of the Spring Meet and gives horsemen a terrific opportunity to cash in on or buy quality individuals, especially those who run well at Keeneland, as they transition to summer racing,” Keeneland Vice President of Sales Tony Lacy said. “While we feel closing day remains the ideal position for the April Sale, the shift to Sunday this year still allows us to properly showcase these horses before attention moves to Louisville and Kentucky Derby Week. We look forward to resuming the sale’s Spring Meet closing-day schedule in 2024 and beyond.”
