Success Begins at Keeneland

 
 
Graduates of Keeneland’s September Yearling Sale scored major European success in 2016, reaffirming the ability of purchases to win all over the world.
 
Keeneland conducts three premier Thoroughbred auctions annually. In keeping with its founders’ mission to perpetuate and improve the sport, revenue from Keeneland sales is reinvested in purse money for the track’s world-class racing program and initiatives that benefit the entire horse industry.
 

Lady Aurelia

Lady Aurelia made history in 2016 when she became the first horse trained in the U.S. to win a Cartier Racing Award. Based at Keeneland with trainer Wesley Ward, the 2-year-old Scat Daddy filly won her career debut at Keeneland in April and went on to capture two of Europe’s most prestigious Group 1 races: Queen Mary at Royal Ascot and Prix Morny at Deauville.
 
 
 

Order of St George (IRE)

In Group 1 competition, Order of St George (IRE) won the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, was second in the Irish St. Leger and was third in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe during a season that rewarded the 4-year-old colt by Galileo (IRE) with the Cartier Stayer Award. His three-length triumph in the Gold Cup against 16 rivals came during a six-race win streak that began in 2015 and included an 11-length victory in that year’s Irish St. Leger.
 
 

 

Hawkbill

From July 2015 to July 2016, Hawkbill put together a six-race win streak capped by an impressive performance to win the Group 1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown to announce himself as one of Europe’s top middle-distance runners. In 2016, the 3-year-old colt by Kitten’s Joy also won the Tercentenary (G3) at Royal Ascot and was third in the Grosser Preis von Bayern (G1) in Germany.
 
 

Roly Poly

Roly Poly was one of the leading 2-year-old fillies in England and Ireland in 2016, winning the Duchess of Cambridge (G2) at Newmarket and the Balanchine (G3) at The Curragh with runner-up finishes in the Cheveley Park (G1) at Newmarket and Lowther (G2) at York. The good to firm ground in the Duchess of Cambridge was perfect for the War Front filly, who outbattled nine rivals to win by a half-length.
 
 

Boynton

In England, Boynton won his career debut at Goodwood and next took the Superlative (G2) at Newmarket over the highly regarded even-money favorite, War Decree. Boynton, by More Than Ready, also was third in the Vintage (G2) at Goodwood in his 2-year-old campaign.
