Racing Breaks Arc Drinks Evening - Important Information

Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe Complimentary Drinks Evening - Important information

We are looking forward to a fantastic weekend in Paris. Unfortunately Frankie is no longer able to make the drinks evening due to a last minute riding commitment at Newmarket that he didn't foresee. We would like to apologise for this as we know everyone was excited to see him. 

However we do have an amazing line up for the drinks evening and have managed to add Oisin Murphy to the panel.

Oisin Murphy 

Oisin Murphy is one of the hottest properties in the weighing room at the moment and has had a fantastic season. Partnering leading 3 year old colt Roaring Lion to success in the Coral Eclipse, Juddmonte International and Irish Champion Stakes, Oisin has also had Group 1 wins on Lightning Spear in the Sussex Stakes and The Tin Man in the Haydock Sprint Cup. Oisin also picked up Stobart Jockey of the Month for August beating Graham Lee and Frankie Dettori.
