Qatar Prix De l’Arc de Triomphe ( Group 1) 3 yr old + Turf at 1m4f Longchamp Paris 2022
Started in the year 1920 and one of the richest race in Europe for 3 year old and up on turf, run on first Sunday of October each year at Longchamp.
This year 20 runners in the race, Despite Verry Elleegent winner of last year’s Melbourne Cup not getting in the field and Superstar Baaeed connections opting out of Arc, this year it is very competitive race in the Europe. Out of 20 at least 12-13 horses have really a good chance to win this race. Weather, Track conditions will affect the outcome considerably. Ireland, Great Britain, Germany , France and Japan are represented in the race. In my opinion it is going to be Japan on top this year. Among the 4 runners from Japan as per Pedigreestar analysis Titleholder and Do deuce have good chance to win.
Among the 3-year-old 19 Do Deuce 25 to 1 odds
16 Al Hakeem 14 to 1 odds
4-year-old 11 Titleholder 7 to 1 odds
5 Alenquer 50 to 1 odds
5-year-old 14 Alpinista 5 to 1 odds
3 Mare Australis 10 to 1 odds
As per Pedigreestar analysis winner can emerge from Alpinista or Titleholder as the trend looks to be Favorite to win the race, and above-mentioned horses can be in the money.
My First Choice is Titleholder for win.

You got her right! Alpinista for the win.
No female has won since 1937.
Edited: Since 1937 no mare 5 year old until today won the Arc.
Zarkava - 2008 winner.
Danedream - 2011
Enable - 2017, 2018.
Since 1937 no mare 5 year old until today won the Arc. 85 year spread.
Enable 3 and 4 yrs old, that is greatness as you know.
Thanks for editing my reply......I already knew Zarkava won for sure, since I've talked about her winning so many times over the years......but was on my way out the door to the dog shows so didn't post thoughtfully.
I sometimes think others can read my mind, but of course mine was a post of MISINFORMATION.
Meanwhile, I just wanted to give Pedigreestar props for having the winner in his top 2, since we know he has a unique way of finding winners. (astrological).
