On Friday, the lucky 13th day of the month, the Keeneland September Yearling Sale will resume with first post at 10 a.m. ET. After we get a day off on Thursday to catch our collective breath, and some can count their money on Thursday, the torrid sale will get back into action.

And, if you think that Book 2 is a respite?

Think again.

It is plum full of many juicy pedigrees and potential racing superstars. Your mission — if you choose to accept it — is to find them. Like finding the right fruit in a orchard, mind you.

Here’s our “Shopping Cart” list for Friday.

Good luck:

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.”
