Arc De Triomphe Betting Guide
Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe
This race is open to 3 year old thoroughbreds and is run at Longchamp in France. The race is run over 1m4f and is a Group 1 event. It is probably the most prestigious race in European flat racing and has been won by some fantastic horses over the last 5 years. The race is scheduled for October and usually takes place on the first Sunday of that month.
That weekend sees some of the best horses in Europe head to France and racing takes place at Longchamp over 2 days. Prize money over these 2 days amounts to over 7 million euros and the weekend sees 7 Group 1 races and 4 Group 2 races take place. The leading trainer for this race is Andre Fabre with 7 winners and 5 jockeys have won the race 4 times, one of these jockeys being Pat Eddery.
It often helps to have a midfield racing position, as it is a struggle to come through a field of horses late on. Frankie Dettori found this out on Authorized yet Kieren Fallon produced one of the best rides of all time in this race to weave Hurricane Run to victory in 2005. The 2010 race was won by Workforce, which completed a prestigious Derby/Arc double for both Ryan Moore and Sir Michael Stoute, but 2011 was a German affair with 20/1 shot Danedream winning for the Peter Schiergen and Andrasch Starke combination.
For the last two years Treve has won the race, trained by Criquette Head-Maarek and ridden by Thierry Janet.
