The upset winner of the 100th Qatar GI Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, Torquatar Tasso (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}) will not go to Japan, as his connections have decided he has done enough for the year, according to a report in the Jour de Galop. Instead, he will remain in training to make a run at the 101st edition of the ParisLongchamp showpiece in an attempt to become the ninth two-time winner of the race. Until now, no 4-year-old male winner of the Arc has succeeded in making it a double at five.

Julia Römich, a representative of Marcel Weiss's stable, told Equidia, “The Marcel Weiss stable thanks everyone for this unforgettable day Sunday at Longchamp. Torquator Tasso will not run again this year. His owners have resisted the temptation to go to the G1 Japan Cup so that he can rest up for next year. The objective is to defend his title in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. As such, we will come back to Longchamp next year.”
