ARQANA and ARQANA Racing Club at Newmarket

13 July 2017


 To celebrate the launch of the 2017 ARQANA August Yearling Sale's catalogue, ARQANA and ARQANA Racing Club were delighted to welcome on July, 13 more than 300 owners, breeders, trainers and bloodstock agents at Newmarket Racecourse to enjoy a day of racing highlighted by the Groups 2 ARQANA July Stakes and Princess of Wales's ARQANA Racing Club Stakes. The Mark Johnston-trained Cardsharp played the perfect hand to win the ARQANA July Stakes, a test for two-year-olds over 1,200 metres. The son of Lonhro who was carrying the colours of Cheikh Hamdam bin Mohammed Al Maktoum saw the trip out strongly to see off US Navy Flag by a length and three-quarters. His ridder, James Doyle returned in the winners' enclosure a few minutes later when also claiming victory in the next race, the Princess of Wales's ARQANA Racing Club Stakes with Hawkbill. The Charlie Appleby's charge was initially running to help Godolphin and stablemate hot favourite, Frontiersman, but experience payed at the end when the winner of the Eclipse Stakes prevailed at the end of the 2,400 metres by three-quarters of a length.
In parallel to the races, ARQANA Racing Club and Resort Barrière Deauville timed up to award the Style Awards Best Dressed Gentleman 2017. The winner was rewarded with a superb day at Deauville on the occasion of the Group 1 Darley Prix Morny, with a double room and dinner at the Five Stars Deauville Barrière Hotel du Golf, tickets to Deauville-La Touques racecourse and lunch at the Owners' Garden Restaurant.

Congratulations to all!
