The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe for 2010 was won by the brilliant Workforce and he is back to defend his crown on Sunday at Longchamp. The Sir Michael Stoute horse ran a blinder last season but there are a host of new challengers to his crown this weekend in what could be a classic renewal. The Longchamp Sunday card features a feast of top-class races with competitors from far and wide . . . a truly international flavour reflected by the crowds who flock from Britain and Ireland.
Sunday’s Prix de l’ Arc de Triomphe is the centerpiece of a two-day festivial of racing at Longschamp and has been described as a “clash of champions”. Arc day has been compared to second day of the Breeders’ Cup in term of sheer quantity and quality racing.
The action from Longschamp will be available Saturday and Sunday on TwinSpires and TwinSpiresTV starting at 9am ET.
