Yearlings by Bernardini, Tapit Bring $1 Million or More as Tuesday Session Closes

A late rush of action with a pair of $1 million or more horses selling in the final 30 minutes of Tuesday’s session of the 2013 Keeneland September Yearling Sale pushed the total to eight such yearlings in the first two days of the four-day Book 1 sale. The total surpassed the seven hips that reached that mark during the entirety of the last year’s September Sale.

Four yearlings drew $1 million dollar or more purchases on for the second time in as many days, continuing a strong market to this point of the industry gold-standard sale.
