The second annual Sporting Art Auction will take place November 19, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. with doors opening at 11:00 a.m. The auction represents an inspired collaboration between the world’s largest Thoroughbred auction house and the country’s premier gallery of fine sporting art and contemporary British figurative painting.
The auction will feature over 200 high-quality lots focusing on “sporting” paintings and sculpture by British and American artists in addition to a few works by 19th century artists.
Keeneland & Cross GateAs a pulse point for a significant global business, Keeneland’s Thoroughbred auctions draw the world’s top Thoroughbred owners and breeders to its fall sales and race meeting. Its September Yearling Sale and November Breeding Stock Sale draw buyers from nearly every state and more than 50 countries–representing Europe, the Middle East, Central and South America, Australia, Asia, South Africa, Russia and India. Last year, Keeneland’s auction sales totaled $410 million while its 32 days of live racing drew more than 500,000 racing fans.
