Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is a Group 1 race run over a mile and a half, open to horses aged three and older, and usually takes place on the first Sunday in October. Often referred to as the ‘Arc’, it is one of the most prestigious Flat races in Europe.

The Arc meeting grows in stature each year, with the Arc itself now worth €5,000,000, making it the richest race to be run on turf in the world. The 2016 and 2017 renewals of the race took place at Chantilly, due to redevelopment work at the Hippodrome de Longchamp, but the race returned to its usual home in 2018.
