Celebrating a Century of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe: The History of Europe's Greatest Horse Race [9781785317248]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Celebrating a Century of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe charts the history of Europe's - and arguably the world's - greatest horse race. Established in 1920 and staged in Paris on the Bois de Boulogne, the Arc is a truly international contest attracting runners from England, Ireland, Japan, Italy, Germany and the USA. This illustrated race-by-race account traces the exploits of many all-time racing legends. From Ribot, Sea Bird, Allez France and Mill Reef, to Dancing Brave, Sea The Stars, Treve and Enable. It's also a who's who of the turf starring the Rothschild, Aga Khan, Wildenstein, Wertheimer and Head families, as well as Marcel Boussac, Vincent O'Brien, Lester Piggott and Yves Saint-Martin. The modern era features luminaries such as Andre Fabre, Coolmore, Godolphin, John Gosden, Frankie Dettori and Khalid Abdullah. You'll discover which champion hurdler won the title, which horse came back from stud to recapture his crown and which jockey ended up in prison as a result of his win.
AUTHOR: Malcolm Pannett has been a horse-racing journalist and broadcaster since 1988. He worked on the original horse-racing telephone information lines and then the services that replaced them, namely web radio and podcasting. He has written for many racing publications and websites, most recently previewing French race meetings for the PMU. Malcolm also works at several racecourses on the owners' and trainers' desk.
