Deauville - from August 19 to 21

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 2017, for the first time in the history of Deauville sales, the winner of the legendary Epsom Derby is a student of a French stud farm, bought in the ARQANA ring. It is of course WINGS OF EAGLES, which was presented by the Haras de Montaigu during the August 2015 auction and purchased by MV Magnier on behalf of Coolmore.

Deauville is the first place to sell thoroughbreds 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 professional categories from 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 :
August Yearlings Sale
The best of French yearling production and a high-end selection of foreign foals (Great Britain, Ireland, United States, Germany) meet in August, at the heart of the Prix Morny weekend, for a exceptional sale.
