Entries for the brand-new Auteuil Sale are now closed and there will be a total of 16 horses in training going under the hammer Saturday 19 May at Auteuil from around 6:00pm.

A comfortable winner over hurdles yesterday on his second start, EDITEUR DU GITE joins the 15 horses already catalogued and will sell as lot 16. This four-year-old AQPS gelding trained by Jerry Planque was second on debut in the provinces just a month ago and showed plenty of improvement at Compiègne yesterday. He is a son of the Group 1-winning stayer Saddex from a solid AQPS family that has previously produced the talented jumpers CHELER and NICOLINE.

The full catalogue is now available on www.arqana.com.

Inspections will start from 10 :00am Saturday at Auteuil racecourse.
