Arc De Triomphe

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, more commonly known as the Arc de Triomphe or simply the ‘Arc’, is considered the most prestigious Group 1 thoroughbred race in Europe. The event is one of a kind in France and attracts spectators, punters and other racing enthusiasts from all over the globe. For those familiar with Australian racing, it is similar in stature to the world-renowned Melbourne Cup.

The race provides the opportunity for the top quality colts and fillies, aged three-years and up, to show their class and ability in a highly competitive arena. Run over 2400 metres (1 ½ miles) on a right-handed turf track at France’s premier Racecourse in Longchamp on the first Sunday of October, the race offers the very lucrative prize money of €4 million. It is the second richest turf race in the world, behind the Japan Cup and third richest thoroughbred race overall behind the Dubai World Cup.Arc De Triomphe
