About ten unmissable sales events are organized every year in Deauville by ARQANA, based on two main sectors: trotting and galloping horses

The Deauville thoroughbred auction hall is ranked first in France and second in Europe. Many are the stars of the grass fields sold during the famous "Deauville sales", today become a real quality label in the horse racing field. The Elie de Brignac hall hosted its first auction in 1892. Currently managed by the Arqana company, it hosts seven auctions during the year: three yearling sales, two training and “ready to run” horse sales, and two breeding and mixed sales.

Good to know:

> Remaining at a safe distance from horses, take a look into the establishment during an auction sale. The horse presentation ring and auction sales are fascinating.

> The amphitheatre of this establishment – with perfect acoustics – is also a concert venue for the Easter Festival and the Musical August.

New facilities

In August 2009, the Deauville society opened his new Pégase court and a new corridor of stables in the C court. Today, the establishment includes about 388 boxes organized into 6 courts, a round arena and a veterinary pole. In the framework of a continuous renovation program, the sale section was subject to major works lasting two years.

Modernity, comfort and safety are the key words of this establishment. The amphitheatre with seating for 415 people and the round riding arena were completely redesigned and renovated. Coloured seats give a special identity to this auction hall. The establishement is completed by two private halls with a view on the sale arena, offices for buyers, sellers and brokers and a business centre.

It also includes:

  • Le Resto: a 200-cover restaurant with a very popular terrace on sunny days, overlooking the sale arena;
  • Le 360°: lounge bar with a view over the sale arena;
  • Le Zinc: for a quick lunch in the main court.
