Azeri headlines January Keenland sale

Former 2003 Horse of the Year Azeri will be making news at another auction soon.

The three-time champion, in foal to 2004 Horse of the Year Ghostzapper, is catalogued for the Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale, Jan. 12-17. The top money-earning Thoroughbred filly, she won nearly $4.08 million in four seasons of racing.

John Sikura's Hill ‘n' Dale Sales Agency will consign the broodmare for the Allen E. Paulson Living Trust. Azeri stunned the September sale crowd when her first foal, an A.P. Indy colt named Vallenzeri, failed to sell despite a top bid of $7.7 million.

Azeri headlines the catalog of 2,379 horses, including 986 broodmares, 834 yearlings, 543 horses of racing age and 16 stallions. Catalogs will be available online at beginning Monday.
