1st US Polytrack Breeze-Ups At Keeneland April 2YOs
In Kentucky, Keeneland has cataloged 226 horses for its April 2YOs-In-Training Sale (April 17 in Lexington) which "will be the 1st juvenile auction in North America to use a Polytrack surface for its under-tack shows," reported bloodhorse.com. The breeze-ups are scheduled for April 9 & April 16. Keeneland director of sales Geoffrey Russell commented: "Given the growing prevalence of synthetic surfaces, especially among tracks on such major racing circuits as Kentucky, California & Illinois, it's important that buyers have a chance to see horses perform on Polytrack.
