Entries for the €1.2-million Arqana Series are set to close on June 1. The series comprises four races for two-year-olds and one for three-year-olds and are open to horses who were offered at the Arqana yearling sales–August, September, V2, October and November–as well as foals and juveniles who were sold at the December Vente d'Élevage and breeze-up sales, respectively. 

Four of the races will take place at Deauville in August with the remaining contest getting underway on the eve of the Arc de Triomphe at ParisLongchamp. 

The series kicks off with two €160,000 races run over 1,400 metres for unraced colts and geldings and then unraced fillies respectively. There is also a €260,000 conditions race for two-year-olds over 1,300 metres at Deauville while the new addition to the series, a €320,000 event over 2,000 metres, will take place in late August. 

The sole ParisLongchamp fixture is a €260,000 two-year-old conditions race to be run over 1,600 metres. Horses are to be nominated at a cost of €1,000 for two-year-olds and €500 for three-year-olds by June 1 in order to qualify for the lucrative Arqana Series.
