Sea the Stars captures Arc

PARIS -- Sea the Stars set Longchamp alight on Sunday with a thrilling two-length victory in the $5.8 million Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

In winning his sixth Group 1 race of the season against all the best that Europe could send against him, the 3-year-old Sea the Stars was repeating the victory of his dam Urban Sea, who had won the Arc in 1993.

The vanquished included Youmzain, runner-up for the third straight year. Cavalryman was third and Conduit, last year's Breeders' Cup Turf winner, was fourth.
