ARQANA has put together a catalogue of almost 500 horses for its Summer Sale which runs from July 4th to 6th in Deauville.
The catalogue consists of 92 pre-trained two-year-olds, 162 two and three-year-old stores, 151 horses in training as well as 80 fillies and mares in the breeding section.
The ‘breezers’ will work at Deauville Racecourse from 1pm on Tuesday, July 4th. Selling starts at 11am on Wednesday, July 5th when all the two-year-olds and stores will be offered. The final day is devoted to breeding stock and horses in training.
