? Amy, what do you know about Keeneland?
- All the trainers I know run horses at Keeneland although they aren't based there - it's a pain when Keeneland has to take over so many of the barns to accomodate horses entered in their huge sales, making training stables move their horses around, so not too many trainers are actually based there.
It's highly advisable to have a very experienced horseman help you choose a horse - to claim, buy privately, or at auction. You can get a bargain at Keeneland or Fasig Tipton but it's never a sure thing, you must have someone who knows the people involved with the horse, knows what to look for in a horse, knows how to spot problems, and knows what a horse should be worth.
