THE WORLD'S BEST HORSE RACE

/ The Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe

WATCH RACING HISTORY BEING WRITTEN!


The Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend, held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October 2019, boasts no fewer than 16 flat races, nine of which have Group 1 status, the highest category of horse race.


In the most important race of the weekend, the world's very best thoroughbreds coupled with top international jockeys will do battle in the world’s best horse race*: the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe!


The 98th 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.


Italian jockey Lanfranco Dettori clinched his 6th Arc title, an all-time record in the history of the world’s best horse race.

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.


Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe : The 2018 best horse race in the world !

For the 3rd time in 4 years, the Longines World’s Best Horse Race award was given to the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in 2018.


France Galop President Edouard de Rothschild was in London this Wednesday, January 23rd, to accept the award.

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


After two editions of the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly (2016 and 2017), 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.
