Deauville Horse / A Group 1 race

One group 1 chases the other during the Meeting de Deauville Barrière, a look back at an exceptional day spent behind the scenes at the Deauville-La Touques racecourse

The Haras le Fresnay le Buffard Jacques Le Marois Prize is a very prestigious Group 1 race where the greatest champions have won. For her big debut in France, the filly Alpha Centauri won her fourth consecutive success at the highest level (Group I) in Deauville, which made her a racing legend.

It's part of these great races, we see the best of the year: it's like in athletics when you have big championships, the champions are there and we come to admire them.

The Deauville Barière Meeting



In August, the Deauville - La Touques racecourse concentrates on twenty days, a program of unparalleled richness and diversity with notably no less than six group 1 races, the races located at most high level of the horse racing scale. For a month, the largest thoroughbred owners in the world or representatives of large French and international gowns meet in Deauville. Crack jockeys from all over the world, seduced by the excellence of the program, particularly appreciate participating in the meeting.

on horseback in Deauville

In Deauville, the alleys are cavalier and the houses are named after galloping cracks. It is one of the few places where you can take your horse for the weekend or play polo all year round. You can also buy a horse with others, meet the best jockeys in the world, learn aerobatics, gallop on the beach in the early morning, train with a horse riding pro back from the Olympics.
Stories that we share every day and that are transmitted for the pleasure of thousands of visitors who have chosen Deauville for years.
Being a horse capital in Deauville means living all these stories and leaving with the pleasure still at hand to have touched a whole world with your finger.
