The Keeneland September Yearling Sale continues with the third of four Book 1 sessions on Wednesday, and we are pleased to offer another edition of the print newsletter, the PR Special, available here and on the sale grounds in Lexington, Ky.
Wednesday and Thursday's final sessions of Book 1 get under way at 1 p.m. and can be viewed live at www.Keeneland.com. After a day off on Friday, the auction continues with Book 2 on Saturday and runs daily through Sept. 23. All sessions from Saturday through the end of the sale commence at 10 a.m.
In this edition of the PR Special, bloodstock editor Joe Nevills continues his “In the Stand” series profiling Keeneland auctioneers. Today's subject is the late Tom Caldwell, who turned down an opportunity to play TV lawyer Perry Mason in the 1950s to work alongside George Swinebroad at Keeneland and eventually take over as lead auctioneer for a run that continued more than a quarter century.
Nevills also pens the Stallion Spotlight, which highlights the first crop of Three Chimneys' Palace Malice, a versatile son of Curlin who won the Belmont Stakes and Met Mile, among other races. In the Honor Roll feature, Ray Paulick focuses on Keeneland September graduate Monomoy Girl, divisional leader among 3-year-old fillies and the first yearling ever purchased at Keeneland by up and coming bloodstock agent Liz Crow.
In Ask Your Veterinarian, Dr. Bart Barber offers his thoughts on throat ailments and whether they are inherited, while Nevills looks at some of Wednesday and Thursday's top hips in Ten to Watch.
