Keeneland's January horses of all ages sale kicked off with solid trade and a gain in median but few fireworks during the opening session Jan. 6 in Lexington.
Life Happened, the dam of grade II winner Vyjack, was purchased by Solis/Litt for $750,000 as the top-priced offering early during the Jan. 6 first session of the Keeneland January horses of all ages sale.
Pick Six Racing's Vyjack remained unbeaten in four starts and proceeded on the road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) with an impressive late run March 2 in the $400,000 Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct.
