Sea The Stars joins the elite with an impressive Arc win

SEA THE STARS earned his place among racing&rsquo;s immortals with a stunning victory in the Prix de l&rsquo;Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp.<br /><br />The John Oxx-trained colt produced a remarkable finish to became the first horse ever to add Arc success to his 2,000 Guineas and Epsom Derby triumphs.<br /><br />Brilliantly ridden by veteran Mick Kinane, the three-year-old justified his 4-6 favouritism to claim a sixth successive Group One success.<br /><br />Victory, however, looked unlikely at the mid-way point with Sea The Stars&nbsp; seemingly boxed in, but Kinane exploited a gap and Stars sprinted to the line in spectacular style.<br /><br />Mick Channon&rsquo;s Youmzain, ridden by Kieren Fallon, had to settle for a third straight second-place finish with Frankie Dettori&rsquo;s Cavalryman (12-1) in third.<br /><br />Proud but relieved Oxx said: &ldquo;No horse in any race has more speed than he has and Mick wasn&rsquo;t worried when he was a little bit back.<br /><br />&ldquo;He just does enough when he hits the front and will never win by very far. He is a great, great horse to keep on winning and to have won all of those races. I can&rsquo;t quite believe it.<br /><br />&ldquo;We just go from race to race and we will see &ndash; he has done a lot.&rdquo;<br /><br />Kinane, 50, who enjoyed a third Arc success, added: &ldquo;I ended up in a position I maybe didn&rsquo;t want to, but I didn&rsquo;t want to risk firing him up. He&rsquo;s a phenomenal horse.&rdquo;<br /><br />Sea the Stars&rsquo; victory was not popular with everyone, however, with leading bookmakers estimating they lost over &pound;1m after deciding to hold their overnight odds. He is now an 8-13 shot for the Breeders Cup Classic.
