PARIS - Zarkava produced one of the greatest performances in racing history here at Longchamp on Sunday as she became the first winner to come from stall one since Prince Royale II in 1964 to win the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

Zarkava was given a stunning ride by jockey Christophe Soumillon to come from the back of the field to take the world's richest turf race worth four million euros from last year's runner-up Youmzain. Irish raider Soldier of Fortune dead-heated with It's Gino for third. For Zarkava's owner/breeder Karim The Aga Khan it was something out of this world - and that for a filly who had been labelled an 'Extra Terrestrial' when she lost seven lengths three weeks ago at the Prix Vermeille.
