If the Deauville-La Touques racecourse is the sanctuary for flat races, the Deauville-Clairefontaine racecourse orchestrates races in the three disciplines of trotting, flat and jumping (hurdles and steeplechase). Inaugurated in 1928, this charming racetrack with typically Norman buildings which passes for one of the most flowery in France is located just 2 kilometers from Deauville.

It is between mid-June and the end of October that this charming racetrack vibrates under the applause of the stands. What makes it unique? Its capacity to accommodate the three horse racing disciplines: flat, trotting and obstacle (hurdles and steeplechase). The Deauville-Clairefontaine racecourse hosts around 70 race meetings each year, and receives nearly 000 spectators each season. A place of relaxation, nature and shows, it offers a program teeming with entertainment. 


Three emblematic races of Deauville-Clairefontaine : the Grand Steeplechase of the City of Deauville, the Grande course de Haies-Guillaume d'Ornano and the Grand Prix of Clairefontaine, which closes the season every year.

We also come to the Deauville-Clairefontaine racecourse to take advantage, with family or friends, of numerous activities made available free of charge. Charity, sports and educational days, each race meeting is under the sign of an always different theme: visitors love it, children want more!




In Deauville-Clairefontaine, nature surrounds you. 100 flowers adorn the buildings and the inside of the slopes is made up of a renatured marsh, a superb plant and animal nature reserve. The racetrack was the first horse structure to reach the Excellence level of the EquuRES label! This recognition shows the involvement of the teams in order to master the “flagship” subjects of the label: energy savings, conservation of resources and biodiversity, and finally the quality of the soil, water and air.
