TVG has announced it will offer exclusive live coverage of the Keeneland July Select Yearling Sale. The sale is slated for July 15 and 16, with TVG beginning its shows at 7 p.m. eastern. This marks the second consecutive year the racing channel will bring the sale to its viewers.
TVG regulars Jeff Lifson, Frank Lyons, Caton Bredar, and Todd Schrupp will be on hand at the Keeneland sales pavilion for the proceedings.
TVG will begin its sale coverage June 30 with a two-hour sale preview program, airing at 10 a.m. eastern. It will be rebroadcast several times before the sale begins.
Top sires A. P. Indy, Storm Cat, Deputy Minister, Seeking the Gold, Unbridled, and Danzig will be represented among the 200 yearlings catalogued. In addition, yearlings by first-crop sires Charismatic, Silver Charm, and Victory Gallop will be offered.
"We are proud to again be taking the lead in network coverage of the Keeneland July Sale," said TVG executive producer Tony Allevato. "Viewers can witness the drama and excitement generated by the world's leading horse buyers spending many millions of dollars on what they hope will turn out to be horse racing's future stars."
"TVG did an outstanding job covering last year's July sale, adding a new dimension and an insider's view for horse racing fans everywhere," noted Keeneland director of sales Geoffrey Russell. "We look forward to the continuation of our partnership with TVG to provide fans with insight into one of the Thoroughbred industry's most important events."
