The famous €4,000,000 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is only a week away and the field for the race is soon to be confirmed. Can Danedream become the first horse since Alleged in 1977 and 1978 to win back-to-back Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe titles?
Her stiffest competition is expected to come from Japanese horse Orfevre. The Japanese horse won the Triple Crown in his native country last year and has won an incredible $12,580,634 in prizemoney. Orfevre will be the first Asian-trained horse to win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
Star three-year-old Camelot is carrying English hopes in this year’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. The Aiden O’Brien colt fell just short of winning the English Triple Crown but is still one of the most valuable horses in the world. He is expected to be retired to stud at the end of this racing season.
The Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe is the one of the most lucrative and prestigious horse races in the world and is on par with the Melbourne Cup, Kentucky Derby and Grand National. The race is always run on the first Sunday of October and will held on October 7 in 2012.
