A classic sporting event

The Arc, as it is popularly known, is a Group 1 flat race open to thoroughbreds of three years or older. This year the Arc won’t be held at the Hippodrome de Longchamp, which is undergoing renovations, but at Chantilly Racecourse to the north of Paris. It’s an opportunity to discover this must-see venue for horse-riding events such as the Prix de Diane, with its elegant Anglo-Norman style stands and green surroundings. Our Roch Hotel & Spa teams are, of course, at your service to help you organize your visit.


A race known throughout the world

Since first being run in 1920, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe has become one of the most prestigious horse races in the world. Over a glorious weekend the best jockeys and their thoroughbreds compete in 15 races, including 9 listed as Group 1, the highest level in the world. Finally, it’s time for the main event of this race meeting devoted to excellence; the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. The elegance of the crowd, the beauty of the location, hoofs pounding the track and adrenaline-pumping excitement; it all awaits you at Chantilly Racecourse during this meeting climaxing with the world’s richest turf race...
