Found wins Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe

Found beats Ballydoyle stablemates Highland Reel and Order of St George to secure a 1-2-3 for Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

Ryan Moore led Found, the Galileo filly who had finished second on her previous five Group One starts, to the €3,149,999 first prize at Chantilly.

Highland Reel, winner of the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot during the summer, took second spot under Seamie Heffernan, while Frankie Dettori rode Gold Cup hero Order Of St George to third.

O'Brien says jockey Moore always thought the four-year-old would win the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, after first riding her two years ago.

"I'm so delighted for everyone. It's a big team effort," the 46-year-old said.

"It's a privilege to be here and be part of it. How can you see anything higher [in his career] than this?

"I couldn't dream this would happen. You know how difficult the Arc is.

"She's only run over a mile and a half four times before and she was unlucky in the Arc last year

"Epsom [the Coronation Cup] was also a falsely-run mile and a half, and we came here very hopeful after a good run last time.

"We've had our eye on this for a long time. When Ryan rode her as a two-year-old and said she could win an Arc - he was obviously right."

Found's part-owner called the O'Brien 1-2-3 "incredible" and praised the filly's staying power in the final furlongs.

"This is the time of year for her. We knew we had a chance, but this is the Arc and it's a tough race. It's unreal," he said.

"She's a hardy, tough filly. I don't have to say anything because her results speak for themselves, so it's fantastic.

"It's the race that all of America watches and obviously Europe does, too, so the whole world is watching. It's a special race to say the least."
