ARQANA'S Summer Sale - held this year at Deauville instead of Saint-Cloud - features 329 lots made up of 166 horses in training, 81 Flat-bred two-year-olds, 81 two- and three-year-old stores and one yearling.

There are also five wild card entries including Blissful Thinking, a juvenile winner at Nantes on Monday.

The two- and three-year-olds breezed on the Deauville fibresand track yesterday and go under the hammer from 11am (local time) today.

Horses in training sell from 2pm tomorrow.

Among the stand-out lots on offer is a Lawman sister to Prix Saint-Alary third Forces Of Darkness (lot 10) and a Pivotal filly out of Group 3 winner Noelani (14).

Goldneyev is the sire of a two-year-old half-brother to top jumper Geos (91) while smart jumpers Roe De Treve (202) and Ma Filleule (217) are also catalogued.
