Arqana Announces New Sale

Thursday, 24th March 2016

Arqana has announced the creation of a brand new sale to be held alongside the Breeze Up Sale on the eve of the French Guineas meeting on 14 May. The 100% Wild Card Sale will offer a select draft of high class horses in training both on the flat and over jumps. Every horse will be entered via the Wild Card entry system and will be included in a separate catalogue with individual promotion. Due to the redevelopment works of the New Longchamp, the Arqana Breeze Up Sale and the French Guineas will take place for the very first time in Deauville. This unique event will have unprecedented potential for international appeal, with two prestigious race meetings on the Deauville-La Touques racecourse featuring three Gr1 races. "We are very excited at the prospect of this new sale, based on a scheme that has been fervently endorsed by vendors for its capacity to enhance the value of smart performers, whether on the flat or over jumps," said Eric Hoyeau, Chairman of Arqana. "The 100% Wild Card Sale will act as an outstanding showcase for horses in training with the potential to compete at a high level, in Europe or further afield. And the combination of a top class weekend of racing in Deauville with two quality sales will undoubtedly attract a large cross section of international buyers." Entries for the 100% Wild Card will be open until Wednesday 4 May.
