Located in the heart of Normandy, Coulonces Sales prepare and manage racehorses for sales. Additionally, we breed our own horses.
Coulonces Sales is one of France’s leading thoroughbred consigners, founded in 2009. However, Anna Sundstrom, a Swedish native, earned her first success as a breeder and consigner with her parents Maja and Jan Sundstrom of Team Hogdala, Haras de Coulonces. In 2007, she consigned LE HAVRE, a homebred who went on to win the 2009 Group 1 Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) and currently is one of the leading sires in France.
Anna will always remember when Coulonces Sales topped the Arqana Sale with a DUBAWI filly out of HIT THE SKY for €1,500,000 in 2013.
Today, Coulonces has sold a number of winners including AVENIR CERTAIN, the first-crop daughter of LE HAVRE who won the Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Poulishes (French 1,000 Guineas) and Group 1 Prix de Diane Longines (French Oaks). Another exciting filly is LAURENS. The Karl Burke trained filly has won six Group 1 races, including the 2018 French Oaks. LAURENS was consigned by Coulonces Sales at Goffs UK’s Premier Yearlings Sale in 2016. HAVANA GREY also impressed in 2018, winning the Group 1 Derrinstown Stud Flying Five Stakes and the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes having previously won the Group 3 Bombay Sapphire Molecomb Stakes (2017)
Coulonces Sales is extremely proud of CAMPROCK, another homebred Listed winner who won the Group 3 Prix Penelope (2016). An exciting colt is HOME OF THE BRAVE, a homebred dual Listed winner and three-time Group 3 winner, and PEACE ENVOY, yet another homebred Listed winner who became his sire POWER’s first Group winner when taking home the Group 3 Jebel Ali Racecourse & Stables Anglesey Stakes (2016), to name but a few.
Anna was brought up around horses. Born in Sweden and from a background of dressage horses and show jumpers, she relocated to France with her parents in 2004 where the family started to breed and buy racehorses.
Coulonces is a family business, always striving to give each horse the most comprehensive care and individual attention to ensure they are bred and prepped safely and professionally to our principals. We at Coulonces Sales would like to thank our team, family, friends and clients for their support, stimulation and trust in us, which has influenced us greatly over the years and to which we credit our success.
