Head to ParisLongchamp racecourse in September 2023 for the Qatar Arc Trials.

This meeting always proves hugely popular as it features a top-class sporting programme as a warm-up for the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, the world’s greatest horse race, which will be held three weeks later on the first weekend of October, on the very same racecourse.

Elite racehorses from France and abroad flock to this event to prepare for the Arc, running in prestigious races such as the Qatar Prix Vermeille, Qatar Prix Niel and Qatar Prix Foy. These three races are run over the classic mile-and-a-half distance, just like the famous Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

The champions entered in the Qatar Arc Trials must prove that they are in peak condition and that they will be ready for the Arc on the first weekend in October. These outstanding mounts will be paired with the most talented jockeys on the planet.

QATAR RACING AND EQUESTRAIN CLUB (QREC)

Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) and France Galop, a marriage of two great equestrian cultures

Qatar is heavily invested in the world of horses, and with the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) the emirate hopes to demonstrate its attachment to this majestic animal. The QREC is in charge of organising Qatari promotions both at home and through strong partnerships all over the world.

Since 2008, the QREC has been linked with the Qatar au Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and fourteen other Group races in France, making it an example for other sponsors to follow. Thanks to the support of this powerful partner, France Galop is able to organise the most richly-rewarded turf race in the world, which boasts five million euros in prize money.

Qatar, which sponsors the whole Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Weekend, also lends significant support to the Arab racing industry in France. Since 2014, the purse for the Qatar Arabian World Cup − which is held on the same day as the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – has swelled, reaching a million euros for the first time in its history.

Qatar also sponsors numerous other high-profile equestrian events, particularly in Great Britain (Glorious Meeting at Goodwood, Champions’ Day at Ascot), through Qatari shareholding company QIPCO.

At the beginning of the 21st century, members of Qatar’s ruling family (Al Thani) founded what is now one of the most powerful stables on the planet. With horses running under different family jerseys, this stable is extremely prominent both in breeding circles and in competition.
