Keeneland today announced it will hold a December Digital Sale for horses of racing age, broodmares, weanlings, yearlings and others on Tuesday, Dec. 15 and will begin accepting entries to the sale on Monday, Nov. 23. The December Sale will be conducted via the Keeneland Digital Sales Ring platform, which is supported by HorseCo. The platform enables Keeneland to host small, select online auctions throughout the year in addition to its four major live sales in January, April, September and November.
The entry deadline for the December Digital Sale is Friday, Dec. 4. To enter horses in the sale, sellers may use the Keeneland Consignor Portfolio. The entry fee for the December Digital Sale is $300. Sales commission is Keeneland’s standard 5% and there will be no RNA fees.
The December Digital Sale catalog will be available online on Monday, Dec. 7. Sellers have the opportunity to submit photos, videos and more to the platform to digitally showcase each hip to prospective buyers.
“Thanks to its ease and flexibility, the Keeneland Digital Sales Ring is a useful tool to expand our ability to better serve our sales clients,” Keeneland President-Elect and Interim Head of Sales Shannon Arvin said. “The December Digital Sale provides yet another opportunity for buyers to purchase quality bloodstock in anticipation of the 2021 breeding and racing seasons.”
