Ribot became the second of the three post-war dual Arc winners in 1955 and 1956. One of the greatest horses of all time, the Italian-trained colt won his two Arcs by a combined distance of nine lengths and, for good measure, also captured the 1956 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the other great all-aged European 12-furlong race, at Ascot, England, by five lengths. He retired unbeaten in 16 starts.
