Impressive Undefeated Filly Treve takes 2013 Prix de L'arc de Triomphe






She made it look easy as she won her 5th straight in the 4.8 million euro French Classic. No one wanted her as a yearling for 22,000 euro (sound familiar). The French bred great great granddaughter of Northern Dancer defeated the Japanese bred favourite Orfevre and finishing third was the German bred Intello. All top three Internationals were descendants of our little Canadian sire.

It was the 10th year in a row a descendant of the Dancer has won the French Classic.
