Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe 2020 – Info, History, Tips And Loads More
Last updated & tested: 2020-03-08
The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe 2020 is the most prestigious horse race in France. A Group 1 Flat race over a mile-and-a-half usually run on the first Sunday in October, all l’Arc de Triomphe runners tend to be very classy middle-distance thoroughbreds with proven pedigree on the level. Some of the all-time great have won this contest. Any Arc de Triomphe results represent form of the highest level to take forward. It was first run in 1920 and named after the famous monument in Paris where the allies had their victory parade at the end of World War 1.
Although open to horses aged three and over, the Arc de Triomphe horse race has only been won by the same animal more than once seven times in its century long history. Only one horse has won the Arc and then regained it; Motrico in 1930 and 1932. The other six have all landed back-to-back renewals; the most recent being Treve in 2013 and 2014. She is one of two fillies to be a dual Arc de Triomphe winner. All but four runnings of this great race have taken place at Longchamp racecourse in the Bois de Boulogne by the banks of the River Seine. During World War 2, the 1943 and 1944 renewals were held at Le Tremblay, while Chantilly was home to the Arc in 2016 and 2017 while Longchamp was redeveloped.

Every big racecourse covered
The Arc de Triomphe horse race is one of many great events in the European horse racing calendar but, although this page is dedicated to it, we wouldn’t be casting our net wide enough throughout this fantastic sport if it was the only thing covered. OpenOdds experts are right across all the leading racecourses in the UK and Ireland, plus special events from beyond exactly like this one! If you’re a smart punter, you’ll know Arc de Triomphe results can be a guide to races the following season. There are so many great middle-distance events throughout the Flat season that an Arc winner can easily turn up in one and follow-up. We’re not just concerned with horse racing on the level either. Some venues like Ascot or Newbury are dual-purpose in that National Hunt events are held there too. There are jumps only tracks too like the iconic Cotswolds cauldron that is Cheltenham racecourse. Whether there’s obstacles to clear in-running or not, we know great sport when we see it and the great thing about horse racing is there’s something for everyone all year round. Let’s give you a little more insight into the main events that take place every year throughout the British Isles…
What are the major events in horse racing?
With the jumps in full swing during the winter and early spring, then the Flat taking over until mid-autumn, there’s an established programme for horses of both codes – and indeed some who cross them – to follow. All National Hunt roads lead to the Cheltenham Festival for the cream of the crop come the middle of March, while the Grand National at Aintree is the ultimate test of endurance. You need a dour stayer and a pretty big pinch of luck to get home as the winner in the world’s greatest steeplechase. Ireland has its Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown, the Easter events which include the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse and then the Punchestown Festival bringing the curtain down on the jumps campaign in the Emerald Isle. Once these great National Hunt events are out the way, then Flat racing comes to the fore with the Guineas Festival at Newmarket, then the next couple of Classics in the Epsom Oaks and The Derby before Royal Ascot. That is the very zenith of excellent summer horse racing that also contains the July Festival, Glorious Goodwood and Ebor Festival at York. If you wondering where the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe 2020 fits it, then it’s a tail end highlight of the Flat in-between the Irish and British Champions events. Come the autumn, National Hunt returns with a vengeance and there’s great jumps racing on both sides of the Irish Sea culminating in the King George VI Chase at Kempton and Christmas Festival at Leopardstown.
