Every year, the mixed Arqana Summer Sale produces top quality winners on the flat and over jumps.
The past graduates were led this season by Dortmund Park, the winner of the Gr1 Novice Hurdle Champion at the Punchestown Festival and the very consistent Lord Glitters, who scored in the prestigious Balmoral Handicap at Royal Ascot just a few months after being sold.
Both went through the ring as horses-in-training at last year’s sale.
SAGLAWY, DIAMOND CAUCHOIS and SRELIGHONN, also Summer Sale graduates, have equally recently distinguished themselves at Group/Graded level over jumps in France or on the other side of the English Channel.
On the flat, THE RIGHT MAN shone once again in the Gr.3 Prix de Seine-et-Oise, just like ABSOLUTE BLAST, who has been placed several times at the highest level.
This year, a total of 472 lots will come under the hammer. Cantered the day before on Deauville-La Touques’s all-weather surface, 71 flat-bred two-year-olds will open the sale on Tuesday, July 3 from 11:00am.
They will be followed in the ring by 143 two and three-year-old stores.
The sale will continue from 11:00am the next day with the breeding stock section gathering 75 fillies and broodmares before – 183 horses-in-training – close the second day. 12 Wild Cards are available in the last two sections.
