Sky Sports secure Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe rights

By iSportconnect | September 19, 2016

Sky Sports will broadcast more than three hours of live coverage of the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe from Chantilly next month.

While both Racing UK and At The Races are already committed to covering Europe’s richest race, the event will be without terrestrial coverage for the second time in four years after being dropped by Channel 4.

The programme on Sky Sports 2 will feature all the build-up to the big race, which is due off at 3.05pm BST, as well as several of the supporting Group 1s on the card.

Sky have previously taken evening meetings in conjunction with At The Races, as well as broadcasts from the Dubai World Cup Carnival.
