For the first time since 2007, the winner of the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (Fr-I) will run in the $3,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf (gr. I). Golden Horn, who scored a convincing win in the Arc after winning the Investec Derby (Eng-I) earlier this year, is among twelve horses that have been entered in the Breeders’ Cup Turf.

Golden Horn will be joined from Europe by the talented filly Found, runner-up in the QIPCO Champion Stakes (Eng-I),. They will face a strong group of U.S. runners led by Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (gr. I) winner Big Blue Kitten and Arlington Million (gr. I) winner The Pizza Man.

The complete field for the Breeders’ Cup Turf is as follows:

Who was the last horse to win both the Epsom Derby and the Arc de Triomphe and then run in the Breeder’s Cup Turf. Dancing Brave came close(2nd in the Derby, 1st in the Arc), but I can’t think of anyone who has done all three.
