Most forgettable Arc in recent memory.
The atrocious going turned the whole race on it's head. Only thing to remember from this race is a fine performance from the Japanese Triple Crown winner Orfevre to overcome a horrible draw, mud up to his hocks, a mistimed ride by his jockey, crashing into the rail and still managed to only get beaten a head on the line. He is a true champ and I hope he comes back next year. Everything else was an aberration with none of the other top horses getting a hold of the track and a number of longshots, who'll we'll probably never see from again, featuring prominently.
One of these years the Japanese are finally going to win this race.
Wow, just realised this is my 4000th post! I think this is an omen that I should retire.... and what better topic to go out on than the world's greatest race... the Arc.
