The Japanese didn’t come away from the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe empty handed with well known owner-breeder Teruya Yoshida sharing German filly Danedream’s win.

Yoshida paid a reported 500,000 ($A694,107) last week for a half share in Danedream who cost 9000 euros as a two-year-old.

Highly-fancied and well backed Japanese runner Hiruno D’Amour was prominent but stumbled coming into the straight leaving him with no chance and Japan still without a win in the race.

A late entry to the Arc, Danedream won Europe’s most prestigious horse race at Longchamp on Sunday to give Germany only its second win in the race in a record time of 2min 24.49sec.

Australasia’s hopes for So You Think were hindered by his wide barrier but the dual Cox Plate winner rallied late to finish fourth behind Shareta and Snow Fairy.

It was the first all fillies 1-2-3 since All Along led home Sun Princess and Luth Enchantee in 1983.

“I don’t believe it, she’s the best horse I’ve ever trained,” said Danedream’s trainer Peter Schiergen, who is keen to send her to the Breeders Cup early in November.

“She is a small filly with a big, big heart and there’s no better race to win. This is a really big day for German racing.”

Ed Dunlop, the trainer of Snow Fairy, was delighted with his tough filly’s performance which replicated that of his only previous runner Ouija Board in 2004.

“It was a marvellous run. I’m really pleased with her and to finish third in the Arc, well that’s great,” said the 43-year-old, whose father John, also a trainer, has yet to win an Arc.

“I will keep her in training next year, maybe have another go at it but in the immediate future we will take her to Japan.”

“I will have to look at the replay of the race but if the owners are willing I would like to set him towards the Breeders Cup,” So You Think’s trainer Aidan O’Brien said.

So You Think’s jockey Seamus Heffernan said it had been a tough race to judge.

“I wasn’t in a great position coming into the straight, but if there was one thing I might wish to do over again it would be to have got into a better spot in the early part of the race.”

Of the other fancied runners, seven-time winning Arc trainer Andre Fabre’s Meandre never looked likely to add to that tally as he was pulling from the start and finished seventh.

Last year’s winner Workforce was never in the reckoning, not liking the fast ground and was 12th of the 16-runner field while last year’s runner-up Nakayama Festa was 11th.
