During the entire month of August the racing community moves to its summer quarters at Deauville, on the Normandy coast. These are four intense weeks with 18 racing days programmed at Deauville-La Touques racecourse, which is managed by France Galop. That embraces 148 races (six of them Group I), more than 2,000 runners and 7.5 million Euros distributed in prize-money.
The Grand August Meeting of Deauville Lucien Barrière is without doubt the most important sporting destination of the summer.
The Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend is the most important and most anticipated meeting of the season! At mythical Longchamp track, France Galop organises 17 high-class races – including the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, the legendary World Thoroughbred Championship race that lends its name to the weekend.
Two days of extreme sport ! The 48 Hours Jump Festival showcases two days of the highest quality Jump racing has to offer. It features 15 Jump races of rare intensity: 8 of them over hurdles and 7 over steeplechase fences.
