Welcome to Keeneland November

Dear [name],

This November represents one of the most important months in Keeneland’s 86-year history. This month, the world returns to Keeneland, and we couldn’t be more proud to be at the heart of these internationally significant events.

November 4 - 5, one week after the close of Keeneland’s Fall Meet, Keeneland will have the honor of hosting the Breeders’ Cup World Championships for the third time. The festivities continue with the start of our November Breeding Stock Sale, beginning November 7 with the prestigious Book 1 auction of highly prized broodmares, successful broodmare prospects and royally-bred weanlings. This is a unique opportunity for the world’s most prominent horsemen and horsewomen to enhance their breeding programs for the future—and to support our mission of ensuring the future of the Thoroughbred industry.

We are pleased to welcome you to Keeneland this November and hope that you enjoy all the Bluegrass has to offer. Please let us—or any of our Keeneland staff—know if there is anything we can do to enhance your experience.

Thank you for your support, and for helping us support the future of the industry we all love.
