CHANTILLY, France (AP) The 6-1 shot Found won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on Sunday, leading home a 1-2-3 for Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien in one of Europe's most prestigious flat races.

Found overhauled pacesetter Vedevani inside the final two furlongs and never looked like being caught at Chantilly.

Highland Reel was second and Order Of St George, ridden by Frankie Dettori, was third.

O'Brien said ''How can you see anything higher (in his career) than this? I couldn't dream this would happen.''

Postponed was the 15-8 favorite and arrived unbeaten this campaign, but never challenged.
