If the Deauville-La Touques racecourse is the heaven of flat races, the Clairefontaine can claim to be the only official racecourse of the Norman coast hosting races of three different disciplines: trotting, jumping and steeple-chase, all exclusively on grass fields. Opened in 1928, this nice racecourse with traditional Norman buildings is considered one of the most lauded in France and is situated just two km away from Deauville.

This season, you can assist to 21 thrilling races at the racecourse from June 17 to October 25. 

Three key events during the season: the "Grand steeple-chase de la Ville de Deauville", the "Grande course de Haies-Guillaume d’Ornano" and the "Grand Prix de Clairefontaine", closing the season every year.
