On Sunday 12 September 2021, the Paris-Longchamp racecourse is the scene of a top-level sporting program that includes the Qatar Arc trials, which prepare horses for their bid in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, a race that is celebrating its 100th running three weeks later on Sunday 3 October on the same track.
The top French and foreign horses will be at the start of the trial races for the Arc that include the prestigious Qatar Prix Vermeille and the Qatar Prix Foy. These major events are run over the same 2,400m distance as the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
Equine champions that run in the Qatar Arc Trials will have to show that they are in top form and that they deserve to be at the start of the Arc in early October, where they will be partnered by the most talented jockeys in the world.

Free entertainment for young and old and a variety of catering offers to suit all!
The Qatar Arc Trials are an opportunity to see magnificent racehorses, to be part of an important sporting occasion, to enjoy a variety of free activities with family and friends and to savour the many different catering outlets. Children will be thrilled to partake in their favourite activities: pony rides, Pony Hop, adorable bouncing horses, sack races and lots of discovery activities around the horse.
