Keeneland January, sigh, all I can say is that It Is A Really Good Thing I Am Locked Up In a Training Class in California. Some really astonishingly low prices.

The only values I saw were older mares - "some astonishingly bad horses" would have been my comment. KEEJAN reverted to its former cull sale status (recent past years had major dispersals that provided quality horses). Anything with quality brought more than it would have at KEENOV. I was able to buy 7 horses at KEENOV at good value, but at KEEJAN I was outbid time and again for the same quality horse.

It was an absolute horrible physical sale. I've never seen so many disasters in one Keeneland sale.

Also, I was shocked at how forgiving people were for those physicals. I saw a few fillies, unbred, that were absolute trainwrecks, bring near six figures. It was boggling.

All I can say is that I am sooooo glad that I didn't go. The temptation would have too great to purchase a mare or two.... I haven't even looked at results yet as it is too soon and I fear I will sink into a depression if I see low prices for the mares I had marked, lol

Just tell yourself--in the case of those whose prices looked low--if the page looked promising then the physical was probably lacking. As others have said above, many of the physicals were really bad.
