As sales-goers return to Deauville in August for the first time in two years, the bloodstock community shares some of their favourite memories of the town. Haras du Logis's Manager Julian Ince shares his thoughts in the latest installment in the series.
TDN: Away from the sale what is the one thing/place you enjoy most when you're in Deauville in August?
JI: Meeting friends and clients, eating out and enjoying the whole sales/after-sales experience.
TDN: Who's your favourite travelling companion(s) for the sales and why?
JI: I would say our Logis team. We try to go out with our team and eat out with our friends and clients together. It's great fun and all our friends, clients and our team get to know each other.
TDN: Never mind tour rules, what's the funniest/most outrageous thing you've seen while there?
JI: Seeing a bunch of breeders, owners, journalists and agents getting their picture taken together in a toilet called the Red Room in a well-known restaurant in town.
