Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe

Longchamp Racecourse Paris, France

Another worthy event is the French Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe run open for, you guessed it, thoroughbreds. This Grade 1 equestrian sport is noted to be the second most prominent horse race in Europe, after the Epsom Derby.

Furthermore, it’s in the top 3 highest paid competition in the world and has a rich history that dates back from 1920. Also known as the Arc, this run is a really important part of the entire ecosystem of horse races. Arguably Europe’s most famous horse race, the Arc has almost a century of history behind it after the inaugural running took place in 1920.

Paris Longchamp racecourse has been recently renovated and is an impressive sight featuring incredible views across the track.
