Lunch at Keeneland Sales costs a mere 3.7 Million!
Well...not exactly! My lunch was $4.00 but for Mr. O'Byrne it was 3.7 million!
Imagine having a delicious lunch and in the room next door a live auction is underway at Keeneland Sales. What is up for sale is a beautiful Kentucky thoroughbred colt.
The bidders seem to be hidden because it's hard to tell who is bidding.I swear they must bid with their eyes by blinking because I don't see anyone scratching their nose or raising a finger. Then suddenly as the bid is going up $200,000 a lick... it ends at 3.7 million! Sold! Number 432 to Demi O'Byrne, bloodstock agent for John Magnier's Coolmore Stud.
His rival bidder was Texas-based owner Clarence Scharbauer Jr. The prize was the gray son of Unbridled's Song.In his pedigree included legendary stakes winners: Unbridled, A.P.Indy, Alydar and Seattle Slew. What a fabulous bloodline! More on the story and video link here.
I know many people come to Keeneland in Kentucky to watch horses race, but to me the Keeneland Sales are the most exciting.
Have a nice lunch and watch people spend BIG money. AHHHHhhhh...What a life!
I LOVE KENTUCKY!
