Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe: How much prize money will the winner earn in 2022?

Big money for a big race.


There’s a reason why the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is considered the greatest middle-distance race.

As well as boasting the prestige of being an elite Group 1 contest, there’s a mega prize pot up for grabs in the battle of the generations at Longchamp, making the Arc the richest race in Europe.


Torquator Tasso is bidding to join an elite club of dual winners having scooped €2,857,000 for last year’s shock 72/1 success in Paris.

It paid to finish in the places as well as the second, Tarnawa, earned €1,143,000 while the third, Hurricane Lane, took home €571,500.


First: €2,857,000
Second: €1,143,000
Third: €571,500
Fourth: €285,500
Fifth: €143,000

The total prize fund for the latest renewal of the Arc has remained steady at €5,000,000, with the first past the post set to net a tidy €2,857,000 for connections. The conversion rate to sterling isn’t looking too hot right now, though…

To put those sums into context, the sole Group 1 race in Great Britain and Ireland this weekend, the Royal Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes, is paying out £151,345 to the winner.

A full field of 20 has been assembled for this year’s renewal of the Arc and it’ll be an international affairs with runners from Britain, France, Germany, Ireland and Japan.
