Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Tips and Race Guide

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the world’s premier turf race and is staged over 12 furlongs at Longchamp on the first Sunday of October.

Longchamp, sometimes known as ParisLongchamp, is the jewel in the French Racing crown and plays host to the ‘Arc’ in Western Paris. The race currently carries a purse of €5,000,000 and is funded by Qatari sponsorship and early closing entries in the spring.

Racing is staged over two days, but the crowd swells on Arc Sunday and the recently-renovated grandstand holds a capacity of 60,000.

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe was first run in 1920 at Longchamp racecourse. Its
name commemorates soldiers that celebrated the end of the First World War by parading
under the Parisian landmark.

John Gosden’s daughter of Nathaniel, Enable, won back-to-back Arcs in 2017 and 2018. The 2017 edition took place at Chantilly during the Longchamp reconstruction and she was crowned the first Arc winner at the new Longchamp, narrowly defeating Sea of Class. Enable was sportingly kept in training but failed to win a third Arc when reattempting in both 2019 and 2020. Enable was retired after the 2020 Arc.

2022 Prix de l’Arc Weekend Diary: Update on Key Horses

2022 Prix de l’Arc Weekend Diary: Update on Key Horses

With the Arc Trials taking place next month and the this weekend’s Grand Prix de Deauville featuring at least a couple of Arc outsiders, we take a look at the latest news ahead of Arc weekend.

 

Baaeed

The brilliant winner of the Juddmonte International this month remains under consideration still for the Arc. Odds of 7-1 on Betfair indicate that Paris is still very unlikely. He would undoubtedly crash into odds-on if confirmed!

 

Do Deuce

According to his owners, the Japanese Derby winner moved to the quarantine stables today with his companion My Rhapsody.

My Rhapsody will run in the Prix Foy, whilst Do Deuce will run in the Niel. Both are set to leave Japan on September 2nd according to Jour de Galop.

 

Do Deuce is the antepost pick of Race Sharp (read more here) and is 16-1 on Betfair for the Arc.

 

Titleholder

The 8-1 favourite on Betfair flies to France on September 16 without a prep.

Sibila Spain

According to Paris Turf, Sibila Spain has retired now and heads to the paddocks.

 

Baratti

Priced at 80-1 for the Arc, Baratti is unfortunately injured and now retired according to Juddmonte Farms, quoted in Jour de Galop. He may take up stallion duties.

 

New London

The even-money favourite for the St Leger is viewed by many as an Arc outsider. Hurricane Lane was under a length away from doing the same double last year. New London was given a Prix Niel entry but is not expected to take on Do Deuce in France until October.

 

Simca Mille

The Grand Prix de Paris runner-up goes now for the Prix Niel rather than the Grand Prix de Deauville this weekend. The trainer prefers the timing and is worried about the condition of the Deauville turf surface for his star.

 

Stay Foolish

The Japanese-trained Arc outsider is an intriguing runner in the Grand Prix de Deauville on Sunday. He will be ridden by Christian Demuro this weekend and then Christophe Lemaire on Arc weekend.

How to get there

Metro

Longchamp is served by metro stations to the north-east and south-east of the racecourse. Above Longchamp, patrons can take the Metro Line 1 to Porte Maillot and then a shuttle on major racedays and Sundays from the bus stop of the 244 bus. Alternatively, they can take the Metro Line 10 to Porte d’Auteuil and the shuttle bus leaves from the top of the station at street level.

The shuttle adds time to the journey but from then it is a non-stop transfer, making the small wait worthwhile.

Taxi

If you are treating yourself to a trip to Longchamp whilst on holiday or are able to split the fare, a taxi makes sense, even from Central Paris or Gare du Nord.

An Uber costs about €35 from Central Paris to the racecourse and takes half an hour.

Fly

Longchamp can be reached via Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports. Orly is much closer and is well worth selecting if you can. From there, it is a 40-minute taxi to the racecourse.
