2019 – The year Japan finally wins the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

Various other Japanese raiders have come a lot better to that elusive first victory since, with a trio of very close to misses out on attracting attention as one of the most hard to take.
El Condor Pasa attempted to make all in 1999, before being diminished in the last strides by superstar sire Montjeu.
Nakayama Festa after that reached within a head of Workforce in 2010 when secured in a tight battle for the final 2 furlongs with that year's Epsom Derby victor. Then the delay finally appeared over in 2012 when Orfevre stormed into the lead with a burst down the exterior. He showed up to idle in front and permitted 33/1 shot outsider Solemia to collar him on the line. This will be the 98th operating of the Arc and the leading Japanese fancy in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe betting is Saturnalia at 25/1, whose unbeaten document was finished when sent odds-on preferred in the Japanese Derby.
