The signs of Fall are beginning to be noticeable here in the Horse Capital of the World - dropping leaves, heavy dew on the morning grass, Monarchs making their way south - and the most prominent sign of all is Keeneland's September Yearling Sale. The sale will begin September 9 and run through September 22. The significance of this sale is that it is the global marketplace for Thoroughbred yearlings and is the world's most important Thoroughbred sale!
It's an adventure unlike any other. 4644 yearlings have been cataloged for the 76th annual Keeneland September Yearling Sale. The sale will have 13 sessions and will be broadcast live at keeneland.com
Charred Oaks Inn, a Select Registry bed and breakfast, is only a ten minute drive to all of the excitement and is the perfect home base. Guests begin their day with an award-wining, made-to-order breakfast either in the Dining Room or in bed before heading off to explore the grounds at Keeneland, stopping at the barns to check out the horses and then heading to the Sales Pavillon to watch the main attraction. Afterwards guests can relax and share their experiences while enjoying complimentary sips and nibbles in the Living Room back at Charred Oaks before heading out to dinner. A homemade dessert and a bourbon cream combined with a large and comfy king size four-poster bed is the perfect remedy for a good night's sleep.
Some rooms are still available for the sales. Call or text 513-739-6156 or go online to our secure website https://www.charredoaksinn.com to book your fall getaway now.
