Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe

Introduction

We are delighted to be able to offer you a comprehensive selection of tours to the 2014 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp.

The Arc weekend is the championship of European racing featuring 11 Group races over the two days. The purse for the whole weekend of the "Arc" meeting in 2013 was €7.65 million, with €4.8 million being reserved for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe itself.

Horse Racing Abroad offers you total flexibility in your choice of hotel, number of nights and mode of transport - "mix and match" to suit your own requirements!

Our packages are fully inclusive, comprising transfers in Paris on arrival/departure (Friday to Monday) and from your hotel to Longchamp on race days, with "Pesage" racecourse admission provided for both days. Our representatives are on hand throughout the weekend to ensure the smooth running of your stay from start to finish.  With a selection of Eurostar train departures and flights from most of the UK's major airports together with Dublin, a wide range of hotels and our exclusive arrangements at Longchamp, we are confident that ours is a Winning Formula.

There are 9 races scheduled on Arc day, with in 2013, the last race being run at 18.40 hrs. As a result of this we will no longer be offering return flights to the UK on Sunday evening.  We strongly recommend, for your own comfort, that you stay overnight in Paris after Sunday's racing.


THE ARC LAST YEAR...

The Arc in 2013 was won by Treve. She annihilated one of the best fields ever seen in the race to win by five lengths and give Criquette Head-Maarek one of her finest moments as a trainer.  This outstanding filly, ridden by jockey Thierry Jarnet, showed a remarkable turn of foot in the home straight.  Japan's Orfevre was runner-up for the second successive year with the French Derby winner Intello in third place.
