Treve becomes Arc angel
Treve demolished her rivals to run out a spectacular winner of the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp on Sunday.
Trained by Criquette Head-Maarek, the three-year-old filly was due to be ridden by Frankie Dettori until he suffered a season-ending injury on Wednesday at Nottingham.
With Dettori sidelined, Thierry Jarnet stepped in for the ride and he never had a moment of worry as his mount powered clear of Japanese star Orfevre, who finished runner-up for the second successive year, and Intello in third.
Winning trainer Criquette Head-Maarek said: "I want to say thank you to Frankie Dettori as he rode an amazing race on her in the Prix Vermeille. I said to save her for today and he did.
"A big kiss and thank you to Frankie, I am sorry he is not here today.
"She won so well, the way she won was incredible. She got no cover and had to come on the outside the whole way."
Christophe Soumillon was philosophical about the defeat of his mount, Orfevre, and hailed the performance of the winner.
"When Treve went past down the outside I thought it would be very difficult for her to maintain that speed all the way to the line, but unfortunately she went even quicker," he said.
"She did something completely unbelievable there. My horse has run straight all the way to the line but he was no match today."
Connections of Orfevre hinted that they would like to return for a third crack at the race next year.
