A Spectacular Auction at the Heart of Paris
This winter, The Auction by Arqana returns with Act II “Yearlings & Performers” on 5 December 2019. The movers and shakers of today’s international show jumping sporting scene, the breeding community and VVIPs will be reunited under the spectacular roof of Le Cirque d’Hiver, in the heart of Paris. The upcoming live auction and online auction sales will feature a collection of 18 lots of world-class yearlings and high potential performers of 5, 6 and 7 years of age selected by our experts for their iconic bloodlines, superior qualities and performances. The full catalogue collection will be available upon request beginning of November 2019.
Created in 2019, The Auction by Arqana launched a ground-breaking program of auction sales dedicated to world class show jumping horses. “The shared ambition with The Auction is to bring trade of show jumpers forward in the same way as Arqana has done with racehorses, and their partner Artcurial before them in the art sector. The market for show jumpers requires accrued transparency, professionalism, globalization and modernization. Together with Arqana, we wish to implement an educational approach aimed at assisting vendors towards the public market as well as attracting fresh investors from every corner of the globe into the equestrian sector,” explains Christophe Ameeuw, founder of this commercial event as well as the Longines Masters Series.
