The Hong Kong Jockey Club will simulcast for betting five races from the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe meeting to be held at ParisLongchamp Racecourse in France on Sunday, 7 October.
The world’s finest middle distance horses will once again gather for France’s annual autumn showpiece – the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (G1 2400m for 3yo+ colts, fillies and mares). The iconic race returns to ParisLongchamp for the first time in three years following a huge redevelopment project at the track.
Leading contenders this year include 2017 winner ENABLE, who made a successful racecourse return after a long absence when winning the G3 September Stakes on the all-weather track at Kempton early September. She will bid to become just the seventh horse ever to score back-to-back wins in Europe’s most prestigious race, but she could face tough opposition from another star filly in SEA OF CLASS.
The Hong Kong-owned SEA OF CLASS stamped herself as the top rated three-year-old filly at middle distances following her classy victories in both the Irish Oaks and Yorkshire Oaks over the summer.
The details of supporting races will be announced later in the week. Final declarations with barrier draws for the Arc Day races will be available late evening on Friday, 5 October at HKJC.com.
