In one month, 150 high-level races take place with no less than 1700 horses in the starting blocks, ridden by 100 jockeys who dream of winning in the straight line. Among these events, 7 races labeled Group 1, located at the highest level of the equestrian competition scale, including the traditional Prix Rothschild and its mares aged 3 and over, which each year inaugurate the meeting. A spectacular race for the public because the peloton, launched at more than 60 km / h, passes flush with the lists, a few centimeters from the spectators!

  • Tuesday August 3: Rothschild Prize
  • Sunday August 8: LARC Prix Maurice de Gheest
  • Tuesday August 10: Al Rayyan Cup and the Doha Cup
  • Sunday August 15: Haras de Fresnay-Le-Buffard Prize - Jacques Le Marois

Semi-nocturnal and guinguette evenings every Thursday

The tables stand at the Black Type for the most trendy of open air associated with a gourmet, musical and sporting program. The races start semi-night from 16 p.m. and spectators can extend the evening after the races in a guinguette spirit at the Black Type bar until 23 p.m. It is good to nibble on its huge terrace, to share an aperitif with friends or family.

During the day, we enjoy an original lunch in the countryside with a breathtaking view of the horse races. Gourmet menu made from traditional products of the region at Panoramic Restaurant or summer menu in the fully glazed restaurant The Paddock Gardens, on the go with food trucks and their tempting street food, it has never been easier to eat.

Summer playground for the whole family

Children in the spotlight

In the stands or with your feet in the grass, the Meeting de Deauville Barrière immerses you in a holiday spirit to disconnect and enjoy the many family activities. Like every year, the essential Galop Kids Village offers children the opportunity to rediscover their favorite activities, between baptisms with ponies, sack or stick horse races, bouncy castle, racing simulator, Pony Hop Race (new generation inflatable horse) and wooden cabins.

Go behind the scenes at the racecourse

To find out more about the hidden side of the racecourse, two solutions are available to you: first of all, the commented tours, organized every day of races and led by a professional who accompanies the most curious step by step in the discovery of races and bets. The second option is to follow, in total autonomy, a discovery route in six stages through the key places of the racecourse: the Stables, the Round of Presentation, the Weighing, the Bet, the Race and the Victory. To obtain the information, all you have to do is scan the QR Code affixed to a panel, present at each location.

Single, pair or trio bet

Installed at the edge of the track, with a direct view of the pelotons launched at full speed, coaches are listening to neophytes within theInitiation to races area. Moreover, accesses are to be gained within this space to allow spectators to attend the start of the race at the stalls in the company of the coaches. Thrills guaranteed! For seasoned punters, the Bet Truck PMU offers direct betting on its terminals.
