Taylor Made & Haras de Gouffern to Offer Yearlings at Arqana in 2019

Taylor Made Sales Agency and Haras de Gouffern will jointly present a quality yearling consignment at the Arqana August Yearling Sale in Deauville annually beginning in 2019. The news follows last week's announcement that Taylor Made is offering a European consignment at the Tattersalls December Breeding Stock Sale. Taylor Made and Haras de Gouffern intend to present a quality group of yearlings with a blend of European and American bloodlines. Toward that goal, they have signed on Cathy Barry to be the yearling manager at Gouffern.

The American sales agency, who has been ably represented on the European front in 2018 with MG1SW Roaring Lion (Kitten's Joy), entered into an exclusive partnership with Haras de Gouffern and its commercial arm, International Thoroughbred Consultants (ITC), a bloodstock and consultancy agency, a few months ago. ITC will represent Taylor Made in France and in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, while Taylor Made will act in the same capacity Stateside for ITC.

“I welcome this partnership with Taylor Made Sales Agency that will make its debut at the 2019 Deauville sales,” said Jean-Pierre de Gaste, the President of International Thoroughbred Consultants (ITC) and Haras de Gouffern & de La Genevraye. “This is a major innovation, as it is the first time that an American operation, but the United States' leading consignor, will present yearlings directly at the Arqana sales. Also, this project should attract some fresh interest in the Deauville sales.”

“We are always looking for better ways to serve our customers,” said Duncan Taylor, CEO and President of Taylor Made Farm. “Jean-Pierre and I, working on private sales to his strong customer base in the Middle East, learned we shared the same core values.”

Added Arqana CEO Eric Hoyeau, “The introduction of a consignment at Deauville between Haras de Gouffern and Taylor Made Sales Agency, historical consignor at the American sales, is in line with our strategy of turning the Deauville sales into a global event. We are always looking to provide our buyers with an offer that combines quality with diversity. It is a very encouraging sign for the French market that more and more professionals involved in the industry share this same vision of openness and engage in the momentum.”
