Keeneland Scales Eklin Digital Repository(TM) to 32 Medical Image Review Workstations

More than 500,000 DR Images Reviewed as World's Leading Thoroughbred

Auction House Converts to Digital Radiography Review

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- When Keeneland, the world's leading Thoroughbred auction facility, opened its doors to the annual September Yearling Sale, the medical repository had undergone a major expansion for the review of digital medical images. Beginning with 12 review workstations from Eklin Medical Systems, which were installed for the 2006 Breeding Stock Sale last November, Keeneland added an additional 20 bringing the total to 32 image review workstations for the 2007 Yearling Sale. The expanded Eklin Digital Repository is currently being used at this year's Breeding Stock Sale.

"We were the first auction company to implement digital medical image review when we installed the Eklin Digital Repository last year," said Geoffrey Russell, Keeneland's director of sales. "As a leader in the Thoroughbred industry, we wanted to provide our participating veterinarians with a state-of-the-art repository so they could review extensive sets of x-rays and quickly assess a horse's clinical soundness. The repository was so successful after its initial launch last year that we expanded it even more this year. Our customers are thrilled, so we're thrilled."

This year, the Yearling Sale featured more than 5,000 horses. The final revenue count was just over $385 million (USD) over the 14-day auction period, with many horses going for millions of dollars each. The Breeding Stock Sale, now underway, is featuring approximately 5,400 horses with hundreds of millions in revenues also expected. Economically, with so much at stake, horse buyers require a set of radiographs of the selling horse's extremities. These radiographs must be taken no earlier than three weeks prior to the auction. The radiographic exam, which averages 32 radiographs per horse, is then submitted to Keeneland's repository.
