THE FINAL DRESS REHEARSAL BEFORE THE WORLD’S BIGGEST RACE
An eagerly awaited day, with a top-class card that provides a high point in the countdown to the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, the world’s biggest race, which takes place three weeks later, at the same venue, on the first weekend in October.
The best horses from France and around the world will be on the start line for the last dress rehearsals for the Arc, among them the prestigious Qatar Prix Vermeille, Qatar Prix Niel and Qatar Prix Foy.
These grands prix races take place over the classic distance of a mile and a half, the same distance over which the famous Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is run.
Teaming up with the world’s best jockeys, the champion horses appearing on the Qatar Arc Trials card will be aiming to show they are on top form and deserve to be on the start line for the Arc on the first weekend in October.
