It will be available on Kentucky racetrack decoders and broadcast live by HRTV. Any RCN commercial location interested in receiving the broadcast should call (702) 227-7590, option 2.

At the top of each hour of the broadcast, commentators will review hips sold, preview upcoming hips, and conduct interviews with buyers, consignors and industry professionals. Commentators also may cut in throughout the sale coverage in the event of breaking news.

Keeneland’s website ( will stream the live auction signal each day of the 15-session sale, which runs through Sept. 23 in Lexington. During the opening two days, a second stream also will provide enhanced coverage and commentary.
