Renowned throughout the world for its unique atmosphere, as well as for the exceptional standard of horses entered, this flat race is run over the standard distance of 2,400 metres, on the first Sunday in October at Longchamp. The race brings together a real mix of generations to watch the best 3 year-old male and female thoroughbreds compete in Paris.

A legendary horse-race, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the one of the ultimate goals for many in the racing world: every owner, trainer and breeder of thoroughbreds in the world dreams of winning this race.
