Why Choose Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Horse Racing?
On the first Sunday in October, for the last hundred years, the more genteel folk of Paris have donned their top hats, tails and floral dresses to attend the world’s greatest horse race.
FYI We don't mean top hats, tails and dresses, nor that those who attended the first race in 1920 will be there this year!
With a five million dollar purse and three million dollars for first place, The Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the pinnacle of the horse racing calendar and attracts movers and sheikhs from all over the world. And in 2017, for one more year only, you can join them for the last ever race on the hallowed Chantilly turf before the race returns to its old home at Longchamp.
Chantilly Place, Got a Pretty Horse Race…
You’ll be whisked away on the Eurostar to Paris for two nights in the world’s most romantic city. From there, you’ll venture an hour north into Chantilly; capital of the art of equestrianism,
Chantilly stands out thanks to its majestic chateau & world-renowned Grandes Ecuries (Great Stables). The estate’s racecourse boasts one of the world’s most stunning courses, over 1.5 miles.
The package includes admission to Chantilly Racecourse, champagne reception upon arrival, complimentary bar and a set four-course leisurely luncheon and a great view of the race, which starts at around 4pm.
Then it's back to your hotel for a night to remember before returning to London on the Monday morning.
"Ce n'est pas une course, c'est un monument" – "It's not a race, it's a monument".
