There will now be 15 horses that will go under the hammer at the Auteuil Sale on Saturday 19 May at Auteuil Racecourse, 30 minutes after the last race of the day. A further two exciting young jumpers have just joined the first group of 13 horses whose pedigrees are already available on www.arqana.com.
The printed catalogue with all 15 horses will be available on site on the day of the sale.
Emmanuel Clayeux’s ELWOOD will be led into the ring as lot 14. A four-year-old AQPS gelding, he won his second start over hurdles by 12 lengths at Moulins on April 29. This son of Martaline is a half-brother to DELTA WORK, the winner of the Pertemps Final Handicap Hurdle Gr.3 at Cheltenham this year and recent 2nd in the Gr.1 Irish Daily Mail Novice Hurdle at Punchestown.
Nicolas de Lageneste will present EN AVANT BAYONNE (lot 15), also a four-year-old AQPS gelding. In full progression, he ran second on his debut over hurdles at Auteuil before filling the same position on April 18th in the Prix Claude Cohen, where he was only beaten a head by the regarded DOCTOR CHALNETTA. This son of Coastal Path carries the colours of his breeder, Haras de Saint-Voir, and is out of a half-sister of the dual Group winner TOUT ROUGE, from the close family of the top class QUE ESPRIT, AUX PTITS SOINS and BETE A BON DIEU.
