DEAUVILLE-LA TOUQUES, FIRST FLAT RACECOURSE

There are two categories of gallop races, those with obstacles and those without obstacles, called "flat". It is on the racecourse of Deauville-La Touques that we can see the most of them during the year. It is particularly famous for the races on its long straight line! It deserves its nickname of "4 seasons" racecourse with its program of about forty days of flat races, the discipline where the speed of thoroughbreds is expressed. In 2003, Deauville-La Touques was the first racecourse to inaugurate a fibrous sand track, which allows it to organize races in winter, when the snow whitens the Normandy countryside. Its grass track takes over during the summer months, sometimes at night thanks to its new generation lighting.

For a month, the world's greatest thoroughbred owners and representatives of the major French and international racing houses will meet at Deauville. Crack jockeys from all over the world, seduced by the excellence of the program, particularly appreciate participating in the meeting.

THE TRAINING CENTER

Deauville-La Touques occupies a very special place among French racecourses, as it is complemented by a Racehorse Training Center, known to be one of the largest in Europe. It welcomes more than 400 horses all year long and more than 700 in summer! Discover the training center here.

The racecourse also hosts the AFASEC (Association de Formation et d'Action Sociale des Écuries de Courses) since 1988, a horse racing school that aims to train the best.
