"It's obviously the biggest middle-distance, all-age championship race in the Autumn in Europe"
Aidan O'Brien says his wildest dreams have been surpassed after a sensational 1-2-3 podium clean sweep at the Prix de l’arc de Triomphe.
The Irish trainer saw Found, Highland Reel and Order of St George finish first, second and third in the prestigious race.
And the success is still sinking in for O'Brien.
"It's hard to believe. It's something that you could not even dream of," he told Off The Ball's Kevin Kilbane.
"It's obviously the biggest middle-distance, all-age championship race in the Autumn in Europe or even the world. So it's something that you couldn't really dream of. It's incredibly hard to have a horse to be even competitive in it. So for it to happen, we couldn't believe it and I can't tell you just how delighted we are for everybody."
