THE WORLD'S GREATEST HORSE RACE
The Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend boasts a prestigious two-day racing programme with no fewer than 15 flat races, nine of which have Group 1 status, the highest category of horse race.
In the most important race of the weekend, the world's very best thoroughbreds coupled with top international jockeys will do battle in the final flat stage of the EPIQE Series, the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe!
The Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe claimed the title of 2017 Longines World’s Best Horse Race at the Longines World’s Best Horse Race Awards Ceremony, which was held in London on Tuesday 23rd January 2018.
The World’s Best Horse Race award, which was created in 2015, has now been won by the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe twice, in 2015 and 2017.
The Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend is also an opportunity to admire another racing breed, the Purebred Arab, in action. A forefather of the English Thoroughbred, these elegant horses will contest the Qatar Arabian World Cup.
Boasting a million euros in prize money, the most prestigious race for Purebred Arabs aged 4 and over is run over a mile and two furlongs and is one of the highlights of this action-packed weekend!
