Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe
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).
Popularly referred to as the "Arc", it is Europe's most prestigious horse race. Its roll of honour features many highly acclaimed horses, and its winners are often subsequently regarded as champions.
It is currently the world's richest turf race and third-richest horse race (behind the Pegasus World Cup and Dubai World Cup). Visitors at the event can share in the thrill, excitement and sheer adrenaline of an outstanding day of horse racing that brings the world’s best thoroughbreds and finest jockeys together in an electric atmosphere.
A slogan of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, first used on a promotional poster in 2003, describes the event as "Ce n'est pas une course, c'est un monument" – "It's not a race, it's a monument".
