Keeneland has set Thursday, April 3 for an under-tack preview day for its April 2-year-olds in training sale.  
 
Potential buyers will have the opportunity to watch horses in action that are cataloged for the April 7 sale.
 
The workouts begin at 10:30 a.m. EDT and will be streamed live at Keeneland.com. Within hours of their conclusion, works will be posted on track's website and be available for viewing through the sale.
 
Work replays also will be available in the Keeneland Sales Pavilion TV viewing room beginning 8 a.m. on Friday, April 4, through the sale.
 
Keeneland has cataloged 125 2-year-olds for the April sale that begins at 4 p.m. EDT on Monday, April 7.
 
In a release, Keeneland said the April sale, first conducted in 1993, has produced more classic winners than any other 2-year-old sale, the most recent being 2013 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner Palace Malice. On March 8, Palace Malice won the Gulfstream Park Handicap (gr. II) by a head over another April sale graduate, grade I winner Golden Ticket.
 
On March 29 at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, Palace Malice returned to win the New Orleans Handicap (gr. II) over another April sale graduate, Normandy Invasion.
