The Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe 2005

Sunday 2nd of October 2005

Longchamp Racecourse

The first Sunday in October is an outstanding day of flat reacing featuring the world's top runners, and crowned by the "Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barrière". Effectively the world championship of flat racing, it brings together the winners of the Derby races at Epsom, and in Ireland, Italy and Germany. The season's fastest runners race flat out over a distance of 2400 metres.

The "Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barrière" is a worldwide media event attracting 400 million viewers in 126 countries, and includes 6 hours of broadcast by the BBC. The race's honours board is one of the most fascinating in the racing world. It features legends of the Arc from 1920, when it was first run in celebration of the Allies' victory in the First World War.

Le Village d'Honneur

Flanking the rails right by the finishing post at Longchamp, the Village d'Honneur is the perfect place to follow the "Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barrière", the race generally considered to be the world championship of thoroughbred racing.
