ARQANA has catalogued 56 lots for its Arc Sale which takes place the day before the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on October 1.
Due to the renovation works at Longchamp racecourse, this year's edition of the auction will take place in a temporary structure at Robert Collet's Pharis yard. The yard was famously owned by leading French owner-breeder Marcel Boussac.
Among the eye-catchers set to go under the hammer include Darabad (Lot 37), a half-brother to Group 1 winner Dariyan who landed the Listed Grand Prix de Clairefontaine last time out and runs in Sunday's Group 3 Prix Niel, dual Listed scorer Maximum Aurelius (46), and Wednesday's impressive ten-length winner Vengeful (56).
Also of interest is Furia Cruzada (62), a triple Group 1 winner in Argentina who finished second in this year's Group 2 Lancashire Oaks and Group 2 of Cambridge Stakes, and Banzari (22), a daughter of Motivator who has won three times in France this season including in the Listed Prix Luth Enchantee on her most recent start.
The sale will get under way at 6pm local time (5pm GMT).
