DEAUVILLE Elie-de-Brignac establishment> September 9 to 11

Year after year, sales of ARQANA yearlings confirm their ability to provide winners of the best events around the world, at all price levels. In 2019, Deauville also had an exceptional sale: a yearling was allocated to 1,6 million euros. The female is the daughter of Dubawi, a star stallion considered one of the best in the world.

Deauville is the first place for thoroughbred sales in France and the second on the European market. Deauville sales have now become a real quality label in the racing sphere and bring together in August all the professional categories of the horse world in the heart of Normandy.

What is a yearling?

A yearling is a foal over a year old. As thoroughbreds are exclusively designed by natural breeding (no artificial insemination, embryo transfer etc.), foals are born at the start of the year until May-June. They are therefore between 14 and 18 months old when they enter the ARQANA ring.

The program

Yearling Sale : faced with the numerous consequences of the Covid-19 epidemic and the restrictive measures implemented in several countries to support deconfinement, ARQANA and Osarus have agreed new dates for their yearling sales. This year, the traditional August yearling sale will exceptionally take place in September, bringing together the elite of French production over three days. The new date will allow buyers traveling from the United States, Japan, Australia or even the Gulf countries to participate in the three sales of “premium” yearlings in Europe during a single stay.

Sale of Yearlings V.2 : the positioning of the V.2 sale is still under discussion and will be the subject of a later announcement. Created in 2013, the Yearling Sale v.2 is the second yearling event of August in Deauville. This vacation offers a tight offer of 100-120 yearlings selected for their precocity.
