There's been some debate in this blog about the BBC's attitude to horseracing - so a piece of news today may be of interest.
Today is the day that sees the 2006 race - and if you're reading this in time you can go to BBC Two to watch live coverage. It is, of course, Europe's richest horse race and it never fails to be a great spectacle - though personally I still haven't entirely fathomed the French betting system...
The Arc therefore continues as a key part of our racing portfolio. As my colleague Barbara Slater has mentioned in her blogs, we have stopped covering some of the weaker events in the racing calendar where audiences have dwindled - but our range of crown jewels is unbeatable. The Grand National, the Derby, Royal Ascot and the Arc are days when racing fans are joined by millions of others to enjoy the occasion, and we're very pleased they're on BBC Television and radio alongside our online racing services.
