The 97th edition of the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe will certainly go down in history: English filly Enable and Italian jockey Lanfranco Dettori will forever be the only pair to win two consecutive editions of the Arc on two different racecourses: Chantilly in 2017 and ParisLongchamp in 2018.

7-victoire2.jpg

Ever since it was created in 1920, the “Arc” has been recognised at one of the highest rungs on the sporting ladder and its  winner is crowned the year’s best racehorse.  


This  competition, which boasts a purse of 5 million euros, making it the most  richly-rewarded race in France, is the Holy Grail for flat racing  professionals. This legendary race is broadcast in 50 countries and  brings together 50,000 spectators inside the racecourse.


For  the second time in three years, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe has  topped the Longines World’s Best Horse Race rankings.



THE QATAR PRIX DE L'ARC DE TRIOMPHE IS COMING HOME TO PARISLONGCHAMP!



bloc-vivez-la-plus-grande-course.jpg

After  two editions of the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at  Chantilly, the year’s most eagerly-awaited event is coming home to  ParisLongchamp,  which was officially reopened last spring after two  years of renovation work.


A legendary race like the Qatar Prix  de l’Arc de Triomphe could not wish for a better venue: the new  160-metre-long Grandstand, topped  with a transparent glass building,  was designed by famous French  architect Dominique Perrault.


The outward-leaning shape of the Grandstand is designed to evoke the movement of a thoroughbred in full flight!


Its colour is inspired by the autumn hues of the trees in the nearby Bois de Boulogne in October, when the event takes place.
