One of the greatest sporting events in the world, held at the truly spectacular ParisLongchamp Racecourse, an opportunity to experience a race with an intensity all of its own and witness the crowning of a legend. The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe is a Group 1 flat horse race in France open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Longchamp over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles).
The prize for the Arc is worth €5 million which makes it the richest flat race on turf. Arc Weekend now includes seven races classed at Group 1 level, and four with Group 2 status. It also features the Arabian World Cup, the world's richest race for purebred Arabian horses with €1 million prize-money.
