Arqana announces split catalogues for next month's Autumn Sale
Brother of Douvan among 813 current offerings
Next month's Arqana Autumn Sale will have a slightly different format owing to Covid-19 disruption and is to be held in two separate stages.
A total of 254 Flat-bred yearlings making up the first catalogue for Saturday November 14, organised in partnership with Osarus.
Following a day of inspections, the sale will continue from Monday November 16 to Wednesday November 18. Monday's session is for Flat and National Hunt horses in training, Tuesday is for stores including a number of horses that would traditionally have been offered at the Summer Sale and Wednesday concludes with National Hunt bred yearlings.
Yearlings by the likes of Kendargent, Le Havre, Shalaa and Pedro The Great are included in Saturday's show while promising individuals from the Flat for Monday include German St Leger winner Quian and Andre Fabre's stakes winners Arapaho and Measure Of Time.
Jumpers in training to go under the hammer include last year's Grade 3 Prix Robert Lejeune winner Falstaff.
There are some real jewels among the young National Hunt stock including Haras d'Haspel's full-brother to the mighty Douvan and a half-brother to decorated French chaser Milord Thomas, from Haras du Lieu des Champs.
