Thomas Leffray | Arqana

Thomas Leffray has joined the Arqana Bloodstock team, where he will focus on horses-in-training and the National Hunt sphere, the sales company announced on Monday. The Irish National Stud graduate, who earned a BTSA in 'Production Animales' in Laval, began at Haras de Montaigu, before joining Haras d'Ombreville. Leffray then worked at Dromoland Farm in the United States, Ballylinch Stud in Ireland, and a year in Australasia at Waikato Stud and Newgate Farm. He was most recently involved with the stallions at Coolmore in Ireland since the beginning of 2020.

“We are delighted to welcome Thomas to the Bloodstock team,” said Arqana Team Bloodstock Director Ludovic Cornuel. “His many past experiences in France and abroad, as well as his good knowledge of sales, will enable him to adapt quickly and strengthen our team. Thomas will work in collaboration with Dominique Boulard on assembling the horses in training catalogues and will also be involved in the visits of young horses, particularly those in the National Hunt sphere. Finally, Thomas's addition to the team demonstrates Arqana's commitment and its eternal quest to improve the quality of its service.”

“I'm passionate about breeding and sales, and I am delighted to join the Arqana team,” added Leffray. “My travels over the last few years and my training at the Irish National Stud have enabled me to participate in the biggest sales in the world and to deepen my knowledge of breeding. Joining the Arqana team is a logical next step for me and I am very happy that this opportunity has presented itself.”
