Serpentine Supplemented To Arc


Serpentine | Scoop Dyga

This year's G1 Investec Derby winner Serpentine (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) was supplemented to Sunday's G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on Wednesday at a cost of €72,000. He was the lone supplementary entry to the €3-million race. In his first start since running away with the blue riband at 25-1, Serpentine finished fourth in the G1 Grand Prix de Paris over the Arc course and distance at ParisLongchamp on Sept. 13 behind stablemate and fellow Arc contender Mogul (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). They are part of a five-horse challenge for the Coolmore partners and Aidan O'Brien, with Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) holding sway as the race's 11-4 second favourite.

With Serpentine supplemented, 16 remain engaged for the Arc. Rain has continued to fall in Paris, with as of Wednesday morning 14.4 millimetres having fallen this week. The going is currently very soft with more rain forecast.
