Antoine Bellanger, the yearling manager at Ecurie des Monceaux for the past 11 years, has launched Arcadia Elevage. The 35-hectare stud farm has 30 boxes and will offer boarding, foaling, and sales preparation services. It is located just 20 minutes from Deauville. Bellanger, 33, previously worked for Patrick Boiteau of Haras de la Pierre aux Fees, Derrinstown Stud in Ireland and Lane's End Farm in Kentucky before joining Ecurie des Monceaux.

“Starting my own operation was a logical step and a very exciting challenge,” said Bellanger, who will offer G1 Preis von Europa hero Khan (Ger) (Santiago {Ger}) (lot 829) as a stallion prospect during next week's Arqana Breeding Stock Sale. “I've been lucky to work alongside great professionals and their goodwill and passion have been an inspiration. We took our time to find the right place and found the ideal location with quality land that was recently completely transformed to receive and breed horses in the best conditions.”
