The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe was all about Ballydoyle trainer Aidan O’Brien, as he entered the first three home in the French showpiece.
The Irish handler teamed up with jockey Ryan Moore to win the Group 1 race with Found, who went off at 7/1.
Our very own Frankie Dettori came home in third on board Order Of St George, while Highland Reel took the silver medal at 20s.
However, after such a display of training dominance all the talk was about O’Brien’s achievement after the race. Here was the best of the reaction on Twitter.
The parade ring was extremely picturesque before the off:

It wasn’t just the Ballydoyle handler that enjoyed a 1-2-3 though:

It was a superb ride from Ryan Moore to bring Found to the front at the right time:

But then that’s nothing new:
