Deauville Cheval / A Group 1 race

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

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

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

The Meeting of Deauville Barière



During the month of August, the Deauville - La Touques racecourse concentrates a program of unparalleled richness and diversity over a period of twenty days, including no less than six Group 1 races, the highest level of the equestrian competition scale. For a month, the world's greatest thoroughbred owners or representatives of major French and international brands will meet in Deauville. Crack jockeys from all over the world, seduced by the excellence of the program, particularly appreciate participating in the meeting.
