Wonderful Updates For Arqana October

DEAUVILLE, France—Following on from an extraordinarily robust fortnight of trade at Tattersalls, the yearling sales action has switched back to Deauville, with a higher number of visitors than expected, especially breeze-up pinhookers unable to fill their quotas in the face of strong opposition in Newmarket. Though held in its traditional slot, the Arqana October Sale has a slightly different feel this year as it incorporates a number of yearlings which would otherwise have been in the V2 Sale in August, as well as those originally destined for Osarus in September....
