The online auction platform was rolled out this year due to COVID-19 and has allowed international buyers the opportunity to shop with international travel restrictions as well as reducing the number in attendance at the live auctions. With the online platform, buyers receive a wide variety of tools to help in making their purchase decisions and consignors are able to provide a wide variety of information including photos, videos, veterinary radiographs and reports as well as detailed information about the horse's breeding and conformation. Many of these details go far beyond what a buyer would hear at a live auction depicting the horse's movement and strengths.


Visit KeenelandDigital.com to start shopping. The platform charges Keeneland's standard 5% with no RNA fees.
