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, boasted no fewer than 16 flat races, nine of which have Group 1 status, the highest category of 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.
