LEXINGTON, KY (Oct. 30, 2017) Multiple graded stakes winner Long On Value, third in the Ricoh Woodbine Mile (G1) in September, has been supplemented to the horses of racing age portion of Keeneland’s 2017 November Breeding Stock Sale. An earner of nearly $1 million, Long On Value will be consigned by ELiTE Sales as Hip 2884A, to sell Tuesday, Nov. 14.
“Long On Value is a hard-knocking Grade/Group 1 horse that continues to get better with age,” Bradley Weisbord with ELiTE Sales said. “Internationally campaigned in 2017, he ran second by a nose in the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai and was an unlucky third in his most recent run in the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile to top American miler World Approval after being blocked badly around the far turn. He’s ready to provide his buyer with thrills at the top of the sport.”
Long On Value has proven soundness and durability, finishing in the money in 17 of his 30 starts during five seasons of racing in North America and abroad and earning $981,693.
He has competed at the highest levels, winning the Twilight Derby (G2) at Santa Anita and Canadian Turf (G3) at Gulfstream Park. This season he was second in the Al Quoz Sprint (G1) at Meydan Racecourse and rallied strongly to finish a good third in the Woodbine Mile. Long On Value also has seconds in the Canadian Turf and Arlington Classic (G2) and a third in the Maker’s 46 Mile (G1) at Keeneland.
A 6-year-old horse, Long On Value is by Value Plus out of the Orientate mare Long Message.
“Long On Value is a top grass contender and an exciting addition to the horses of racing age segment of the November Sale,” Keeneland Vice President of Racing and Sales Bob Elliston said.
Keeneland’s November Sale, the most important auction of its kind in the world, runs Nov. 7-18.
