Amy Lanigan has been named the new American representative for Arqana, the sales company announced on Wednesday. Lanigan follows Tony Lacy, who was recently named Vice-President of Keeneland Sales.
“I am excited at the fact Amy has been chosen to take over the role as the North American representative at Arqana”, said Tony Lacy of the Darley Flying Start alum. “Having been in that role myself for the past 12 years, I feel strongly she has the skill set, personality and work ethic to be perfect for the position. Not only is she is a very familiar face to the European sales community, she is highly respected on this side of the Atlantic also. She will be a great asset to Arqana going forward.”
Previously Lanigan spent three years at the advertising agency The Bell Group, as well as a similar amount of time in Darley's marketing department in Newmarket. Besides working alongside her trainer husband, she also accompanied John Ferguson to numerous sales in Europe. The Lexington, Kentucky-based Lanigan was also the UK correspondent for Taylor Made Europe from 2018-2019. She currently runs her own photo and video business. Her clients include Darley, Coolmore, Lane's End, Taylor Made, Shadwell, and many other vendors and consignors.
“I am thrilled to be able to put my skills to work for one of Europe's largest sales agencies,” said Lanigan. “My past experiences have allowed me to build a strong network in both Europe and the United States and to work on many areas within the industry. I am now looking forward to starting my new assignments and discovering Deauville in August.”
