Punters Paradise offers an opportunity to sell horse racing picks online, a Free So You Think horse form for the Arc de Triomphe, interactive racing forum reviews and more.

Online PR News – 01-October-2011 – aus – One of the World’s highest rated race horses, imported racing sensation So You Think, makes his assault on the Arc de Triomphe this Sunday and to share this exciting action Punters Paradise is providing a free So You Think horse form, interactive racing forums where members discuss So You Think and review key upcoming races, the ability to buy or sell racing picks online and more.

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is a Group One 2,400 metre flat race held at the Longchamp racecourse in France. Commonly referred to as the ‘Arc’, it’s known in French horse racing culture as "Not so much a race as a monument".

The 2011 Arc, open to gallopers aged three years and up, is the world’s second richest turf horse race with prize money totaling €4 million ($5.5 million AUD). It jumps off this Sunday at 3:15pm GMT (12:15am Monday AUEST) as race number six.

Imported Australian racing sensation So You Think and French Champ Sarafina are in a virtual bookmaker and betting exchange tie for Arc favouritism, with win odds in the $3.80-$4.50 range.

Next up are the Frank Head trained Galikova and last year’s Arc winner the Sir Michael Stoute trained Workforce priced to win in the $7.00 range. Workforce is seeking to become the seventh galloper to win the Arc twice, and the sixth to win it back to back.

The Free Punters Paradise So You Think Form clearly supports the reasons why the Aidan O’Brien trained galloper’s been chosen a co-favourite to claim the Arc and become the first horse in history from Australasia to win the event. The Aidan O’Brien trained So You Think has won four of his five starts including:

- The Group One 2011 Tattersalls Gold Cup.
- A victory in the Group One Irish Champion Stakes in September.
- The Group One 2011 Coral-Eclipse Stakes beating Workforce by ½ length

Each form includes a detailed record of the horse’s last ten starts, career statistics, win and place-rates, average winnings per race, handicap weight and barrier draw records, track performances, jockey wins and more.

Key Arc de Triomphe Form facts:

- 10 of the last 10 winners were running in the Arc for the first time.
- 8 of the last 10 winners came from the first four positions in Arc betting.
- Fillies and mares have only accounted for 17 wins out of the 88 previous Arc’s held.
