Deauville-La Touques

______________

 

 

Built when Deauville was created, this is where you can see the most flat races in France, the discipline where all the speed of thoroughbreds is expressed. If race meetings are organized all year round, every summer, Deauville-La Touques welcomes the Deauville Barrière Meeting, renowned for its prestigious Group 1 races, located at the highest level of the horse racing ladder. For a month, the greatest owners of thoroughbreds in the world and representatives of major French and international companies meet there.

It is between mid-June and the end of October that theDeauville-Clairefontaine racecourse vibrates under the applause of the stands, on the occasion of the Clairefontaine meeting. What makes it unique? Its capacity to accommodate the three disciplines of horse racing: the flat, the trotting and the obstacle (hurdles and steeplechase), making it the only tridisciplinary racecourse on the Normandy coast. It hosts around twenty race meetings each year, including three emblematic: the Grand Steeplechase of the City of Deauville, the Grande Course de Haies-Guillaume d'Ornano and the Grand Prix de Clairefontaine, which closes the season every year. .
