The Lucien Barrière Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe
The lords of horse-racing.
Considered the most prestigious horse race, the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe is the largest international horse racing event.
This world sporting event allows France to feature amongst the big nations organising races and constitutes a major stage in the recognition of French breeding of thoroughbreds.
Recognised throughout the world for its unique atmosphere, but also and in fact especially for the quality of the horses which are presented there, this horse race is run over the standard distance of 2,400 m and on grass every first Sunday in October at the Longchamp racecourse in Paris. This mix of generations brings together the best 3 year-old male and female thoroughbreds and their elders at the Longchamp horse-track.
A legendary horse-race, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the one of the ultimate targets - every owner, trainer and breeder of thoroughbreds in the world dreams of winning this race.
The prestige of one of the most prestigious horse-races, in one of the most beautiful cities of the world, has a real fascination, even for the most powerful.
The Breeder's Cup, the Japan Cup and the big Hong Kong races which happen at the end of the year cannot compare with this legendary race, rich in history, in its famous struggles and its glorious list of winners.
