Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe

From Tom
October 2017

The Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe has been won by a number of superstars and one of the best of those has to be the Irish champion in Sea the Stars. Sea the Stars finished his stunning career with 8 victories in which he tasted defeat only once when badly needing the experience on his debut. In his stellar career he amassed prize money of 4,416,708.

His lists of awards are lengthy in which he finished with a time form rating of 140. One of the key awards was the European Champion 3 year old colt in 2009 which was followed with the European horse of the year.

Sea the Stars had so many top performances that included the 2000 Guineas, Epsom Derby and Irish champion stakes.

However the one which he will forever be remembered by is his staggering turn of foot when he looked to be in all sorts of trouble way back in the field in the Arc in which he put the race to bed in a matter of strides. In doing so; Sea the Stars cemented himself as the greatest horse of his generation and one of the greatest horses in history. The infographic below will cover the Arc and why it is Europe's premier race.
