A look through the 2013 Keeneland September catalog shows the usual depth of promising yearlings. This list spotlights yearlings out of grade I-winning mares who already have produced at least one stakes winner.
The combination of those two requirements brings up a list of 22 yearlings, 13 who will be offered in the first four sessions as part of the first catalog. Following is a list of those 13 yearlings. The other nine yearlings will be spotlighted before the beginning of the second catalog.
(Listed progeny accomplishments are through Sept. 2.)
