From the Keeneland Media Team:

Keeneland has announced 11 supplemental entries to the catalog for the January Horses of All Ages Sale, which will be held Jan. 7-10, 2019.

With the additions, a total of 1,565 horses, including champion Abel Tasman, have been cataloged to the auction, which offers broodmares and broodmare prospects, yearlings, horses of racing age and stallions.

The Jan. 7 opening session includes seven supplements, five consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent, and two consigned by Hunter Valley Farm, agent. Of the four supplements cataloged to the Jan. 8 session, two are from the consignment of Lane’s End, agent, with one apiece from consignor James M. Herbener Jr., agent for Fox Hill Farms, and consignor Mill Ridge Sales, agent for Juddmonte Farms.

On the first day, supplemental entries are the broodmare Brunilda (ARG), a Grade 3 winner in foal to Mshawish; three racing or broodmare prospects, Miz Creed and Egoli, both winners at 2 in 2018, and White Mischief; two yearlings, a colt by Declaration of War out of a half-sister to impressive juvenile Coliseum and a filly by California Chrome out of stakes winner Dame Ellen; and the Grade 3-placed racing prospect Marzo.

Supplemented to the sale’s second day are racing or broodmare prospects Best Performance, a multiple graded stakes-placed winner who was second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1), and Navajo, a winner at 2; broodmare prospect Butterscotch, a full sister to Grade 1-placed Normandy Invasion; and racing prospect Allium.

Keeneland continues to accept supplementary entries.

The January Sale’s four sessions begins at 10 a.m. ET each day, and the sale will be streamed live on Keeneland.com. TVG coverage of the auction will begin Sunday, Jan. 6, and continue the following two days.


The horse broke well today,” Gaffalione said. “I had the horse inside, Dunph, going to the lead and then (Gun It) showed a little bit of speed. When I saw they were intent on going I just tried to get him back and got him to relax. He came back to me nicely and settled well down the backside. Got a little keen going into the far turn and wanted to move a little early. But I didn’t want to take too much away from him so I tried to sit as long as I could. He was waiting on horses down the lane but I kept him at task and there was plenty of horse there.”

“Mark (Casse, the trainer) and his team have done a great job,” Gaffalione said. “They’ve had a ton of confidence in this horse the whole way. It’s just an honor to be able to ride the horse. He’s just so professional, trains great and he’s a pleasure to be around.”
