 I am shocked there are 15 horses in the Arc-Was Love withdrawn because the ground was soft from rain?

Love withdrawn because of soft ground.  Unfortunately all of O'Brien's other horses withdrawn for positives:

Aidan O'Brien will scratch all of his Sunday runners-including his four contenders for the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe-after results of a urine test came back positive.

It does sound like it could be feed contamination.

Aidan O'Brien has withdrawn all four of his horses from Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in Paris after they tested positive for a banned substance.

It is suspected that the prohibited substance was in contaminated feed.

The Irish trainer was due to run Mogul, Japan, Serpentine and Sovereign in Europe's richest race, which Enable is bidding to win for a record third time.

His sons Joseph and Donnacha have also withdrawn horses they were due to run in other races at the meeting.

A total of 11 horses trained by the trio will be absent.

The Arc can have more than 15 at times. 
yes Love was withdrawn because they knew the ground would not suit her.
