The Arc is one of the highlights of many top-level races over the weekend of Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October. The countdown to the event has started with only 50 days to go and it is time to book your place for this amazing sportive event.

British team hoping to make history

Is it possible to win three consecutive Arcs? This is the record the British champion mare Enable is aiming for in 2019.

She is not the first to try and win three Arcs. So far, it has never been done. Could Enable, who won the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in 2017 and in 2018, win this race one more time? We will get the answer on October 6 at ParisLongchamp.

In her quest to win, Enable has a crucial ally and that is her jockey Frankie Dettori, one of the world’s best jockeys, who has ridden her to all her career victories.

A star on the international stage of horse racing, Dettori has already won the Arc six times, which makes him the most decorated jockey in the history of the event. He celebrates his victories with a flying dismount, which always delights the crowd!

Fabulous Food Garden, Guinness bar, music and attractions.
