BREAKING: Rich People Buying Fast Horses

Watch live here, Sept. 10 to 25 (no sales on the 14th.) Real Player required.

There are a pair of 747's parked on the tarmac of Blue Grass Airport.

That can only mean one thing: the September yearling sale at Keeneland, and Sheikh Mohammed is in town, essentially deciding which of the best horses he'll take and which he's willing to let the folks at Coolmore have.

It's a bit of a spectacle, but the city gets to demonstrate that it's a bit more global than people realize.
