PRESTIGIOUS SPORTING EVENTS

1 ABU DHABI POULES D'ESSAI
FGAP702_AP_ABU_DHABI_260X170_V2_1.jpg

Abu Dhabi Poules d'Essai des Poulains and Abu Dhabi Poules d'Essai des Pouliches:


The rising stars of the racing scene will gallop into the spotlight at ParisLongchamp on Sunday 13th May 2018!


These two events kick off the 2018 EpiqE Series, a championship made up of France’s best horse races.
The two races are of primary importance because they are “classics”: every year they crown the year’s best 3-year-old colt and filly over the mile distance.  
Three is the quintessential age for English thoroughbreds, the breed of horse that takes part in this race.

France Galop and Arqana, in association with the AFAC, have signed a sponsorship agreement with the Abu Dhabi Sports Council, an organisation dedicated to promoting sport and high-level competition, for the Poule d’Essai weekend in mid-May.  

Thanks to this partnership, the total purse for each of these two races has gone up to €600,000 for the colts (€342,840 to the winner) and €500,000 for the fillies (€285,700€ to the winner).

These winnings are combined with a 63% premium if the winning colt or filly qualifies for the owner premium, which is reserved for horses born and bred in France or “assimilated”.

The total winnings could therefore amount to €558,829 for the winner of the Abu Dhabi Poule d'Essai des Poulains, if the winning colt qualifies for this premium, and €465,691 for the female winner of the Abu Dhabi Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (prize money + premium).

The Abu Dhabi Poules d'Essai des Poulains and des  Pouliches are the first two flat stages of the EPIQE series, a  championship made up of France’s 14 best horse races!


These  14 prestigious races are held on France’s most beautiful racecourses  and lead up to two circuit highlights: the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de  Triomphe, which is won at a gallop, and the Prix d’Amérique Opodo for  trotters.

The world’s most talented jockeys coupled with the very  best mounts test their speed in seven of the world’s most prestigious  flat-racing events, with one goal in mind: to take the laurels in the  final flat stage, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe!

2 GRAND STEEPLE-CHASE DE PARIS
Grand_steeple_chase.jpg

The Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris, the year’s most heroic racing event, will be held at Auteuil racecourse on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May 2018!

The Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris is a veritable marathon!
The race is run over a distance of 3 ¾ miles (just under the maximum distance for a steeplechase) and is dotted with 23 spectacular obstacles that have earned Auteuil racecourse a reputation as the “Temple of Jumps Racing”.

This legendary race is reserved for the very best jumps racehorses and the most experienced jockeys.
To compete in such a demanding race, the horses must boast incredible sporting prowess, a blend of stamina, speed and a perfect jumping technique. To improve their odds of winning such a race, these exceptional horses are coupled with the very best jockeys!
