Sun 6 August - Hippodrome de Deauville-La Touques

Guided visit of the Deauville-la Touques racecourse

“Au Coeur de l’hippodrome” : experience the organization of a horse race and visit the backstage and the key sites of an extraordinary place (presentation ring, scales for jockeys…).

Departures on every race day at 1:30 pm, 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm.

The Deauville-La Touques racecourse welcomes the highest amount of gallop races during the year. About 10 years ago, it has been the first to inaugurate a sand-fibre track to welcome races during winter too. It deserves its name of “4-seasons” racecourse, as it has an annual program of flat races, in which thoroughbred horses can best show their speed.
Advanced races and a training centre hosting 300 horses (600 in summer) fascinate the best horses, mounted by the most famous jockeys.
The racecourse also welcomes a school, the A.F.A.S.E.C, focused to the training of jockeys.
