Le Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe 2014 - I am way behind

After a few months of moving and travelling I am finally settled down enough to catch up a bit on the blog. I will start with 2 of the biggest International races. In this year's $6.8M l'Arc it was the outstanding French bred filly Treve winning it for the second year in a row, the first time that has happened since Alleged in 1978. She made a powerful move at the top of the stretch to outrun the two GB breds Flintshire and Taghrooda. Of course all 3 were descendants of Northern Dancer.

1) Treve (FR) great great granddaughter x3 through Montjeu/Sadlers Wells
2) Flintshire (GB) great great grandson x4 through Danehill/Danzig
3) Taghrooda (GB) great grandson x2 through Sea the Stars and a Sadlers Wells mare
