The Deauville-La Touques racecourse The Deauville-La Touques racecourse is the one where you can see the most races during the year! It deserves its nickname of "4 seasons" racecourse with its program of 42 days of flat races, the discipline where the speed of thoroughbreds is expressed. Its prestigious races (Group 1) and its training center with 300 horses all year round and 600 in summer attract the elite riders and an international clientele. Ten years ago, this racecourse was the first to inaugurate a fibrous sand track, which allows it to organize races in winter. Its grass track takes over in the summer. Deauville-La Touques then hosts numerous races that have earned it its reputation, including the famous Prix Rothschild, Maurice de Gheest, Jacques Le Marois, Morny, Jean Romanet... and to close the summer season, the Grand Prix de Deauville.

The Deauville-Clairefontaine racecourse If the Deauville-La Touques racecourse is the sanctuary of flat racing, the Clairefontaine racecourse can pride itself on being the only tri-disciplinary racecourse on the Normandy coast, hosting trotting, jumping and flat races exclusively on grass. Located in the towns of Tourgéville and Bénerville, the Deauville-Clairefontaine racecourse, with its typically Norman buildings, is considered one of the most flowery in France: "the racecourse with 100,000 flowers", according to an expression by Léon Zitrone. It is also a place of relaxation where you can spend a day with your family: many activities are offered for children and different themes punctuate each day of racing.

The International Horse Center Located in the heart of one of the best breeding grounds, Deauville inaugurates the International Horse Center in 2010, a facility totally dedicated to the multidisciplinary promotion of sport horses. A temple to equestrian sports, this high-quality, indoor, multi-purpose center is open to all audiences, professionals, individuals and schools. It offers an unequalled capacity of reception and organization: pony-club and horse-club, stable of owners, ideal installations for the training courses and the training of the horses, areas of regional, national or international competitions, place of formation and naturally of spectacle.

Arqana The Élie de Brignac establishment is the leading auction house for English thoroughbreds in France, second in Europe and fourth in the world behind Lexington, Newmarket and Dublin. Deauville has been the scene of the sale of champions who have forever marked the history of international racing, notably winning the mythical Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe: Helissio, Subotica and the unforgettable Urban Sea, dam of the current European leading stallion Galileo and of the crack Sea The Stars, and many others, have forged the international reputation of Arqana. Today, seven auctions are held throughout the year: three yearling sales, two sales of training horses and horses "ready to run" and two sales of breeding and mixed. Note: the amphitheater of the establishment - with its perfect acoustics - is also a concert venue for the Easter Festival and the Musical August.

The training center The Deauville Training Center is one of the most important training centers in France: it welcomes 300 horses year round and twice as many during the summer season and the famous summer meeting. Stalls have been built especially for training and owners can also use those of the Tattersall Stables, built in 1887 and restored from 1985 to 1991. Different training tracks are used: For the flat: 3 sand tracks of 2,000 meters, one of which is for trotting and two for canters; 1 grass track of 2,000 meters and a surface of 5 hectares; For jumping: 1 canter track equipped with mobile hurdles; 1 steeplechase lane. The Center also has at its disposal the tracks located in the center of the Deauville-La Touques racetrack. The new sand track allows training regardless of the weather.
