Europe’s premier race; the Prix de L’Arc inaugurated back in 1920 and has continued to grow in statue. It has established itself as the most prestigious horse racing event and is a targeted group 1 as many of the top horses across the world are brought over to France to take part. With this in mind it has been won by a long list of the top horses ever to race. One that must come to mind is the mighty Mill Reef.
Mill Reef had an amazing career in which he won 12 times and finished runner up in 2 others in his 14 race career. He won a list of awards throughout his career that included the English 3 year old Champion Colt in 1971 and the English Champion older horse in 1972.
In his two year old campaign he won a list of the top races such as the Coventry stakes at Royal Ascot and the Dewhurst at Newmarket. He followed this up the following years by winning the Epsom Derby, King George and of course the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe. He won the Arc impressively by beating star French filly Pistol Packer by 3 lengths. Mill Reef will forever be remembered as one of the top horses to have ever raced. This infographic will cover the stats and facts on Europe’s key race and why it is the best.
