Horse Racing France: 2014 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe will be worth €5 million

Longchamp France Horse Racing

The 2014 edition Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe will be worth €5 million (£4.1m) after French racing's governing body announced a €200,000 increase to the total prize fund on Monday.

The increase means that Europe's richest race is now worth €1m more than when Solemia defeated Orfevre just 18 months ago.

The Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club first sponsored the race in 2008 and are already committed until 2022.

The QREC are also engaged in ongoing discussions with France Galop about the possibility of taking a financial stake in the project for the renewal of Longchamp.

Britain's richest race, the Investec Derby, is due to be run for £1,325,000 next month.
