Ryanair have a lot to answer for.
A few weeks ago Eamon, a good friend of mine, rang me to say that he had spotted cheap flights to Paris for the last weekend in September - the Arc weekend.
Eamon and I both had busy Septembers so this was great timing for a short break.
Our main interest was the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe, perhaps the most prestigious race for top grade horses and this year something special was on the cards as Sea the Stairs an Irish (John Oxx) trained horse was on to complete a remarkable run of group one wins.
What this horse achieved in winning this race has never been completed before and without doubt makes him the most valuable horse in the world - watch and enjoy!
