2  THE MOST OUTSTANDING RACES

THE MOST OUTSTANDING RACES

SUNDAY 29TH JULY

PRIX ROTHSCHILD

A spectacular sprint!


The Barrière Deauville Meeting starts with a bang! This Group 1 race, the highest category of horse race, is reserved for mares aged 3 and over. 

It is run over a mile, the ideal distance for showcasing speed. 


This race is highly spectacular to watch, as the field gallops at speeds of over 60 km/h (40mph) within touching distance of the spectators! Deauville-La Touques racecourse is renowned for its sprint races.

SUNDAY 29TH JULY

PRIX GUILLAUME D’ORNANO–HARAS DU LOGIS SAINT-GERMAIN


Reserved for 3-year-old horses, this race is often run by the stars of the QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club. This was the case of New Bay in 2015, and Almanzor and Zarak in 2016. From a sporting point of view, this event is known as the best race for 3-year-old horses held on Deauville - La Touques racecourse.

SUNDAY 5TH AUGUST

LARC Prix Maurice de Gheest 

A rare showdown between sprinters and milers


This is one of the Barrière Deauville Meeting's most eagerly-anticipated races as it is one of very few European races run over the distance of 6 ½ furlongs. 


Because of its unusual distance, this sprint race gives rise to an eclectic field made up of sprinters – specialists over distances of between 5 and 6 furlongs – and Milers, whose favoured distance is a mile (8 furlongs). This Group 1 race is always a great one to watch.

courses remarquables 2.jpg

AL RAYYAN CUP PRIX KESBEROY ET DOHA CUP PRIX MANGANATE


The Barrière Deauville Meeting also shines the spotlight on purebred Arabs with two Group 1 races, the highest category of horse race, reserved for this breed. 


One is for 3-year-olds and the second is for experienced horses aged 4 and over. Horse racing's most acclaimed breed, the English thoroughbred, originated from the purebred Arab breed. 


In the 18th century, oriental stallions were crossed with native English mares, giving birth to the English thoroughbred breed which is renowned for its speed.

SUNDAY 12TH AUGUST

PRIX DU HARAS DE FRESNAY-LE-BUFFARD – JACQUES LE MAROIS


This sprint race run over a mile boasts the highest purse of the Barrière Deauville Meeting, with €700,000 to be shared out among the first five finishers. 


Open to males and females aged 3 and over, its field is made up of young hopefuls and their more experienced elders. 


Champions flock from all over Europe to compete in this race, sometimes even further. 


It is one of the Meeting's most spectacular races! This race is preceded by a jockey parade.

SATURDAY 18TH AUGUST

SHADWELL PRIX DE LA NONETTE


This race for 3-year-old fillies is, within the framework of the Barrière Deauville Meeting, the equivalent of the Prix Guillaume D'Ornano for colts. That means that the winners of the Prix de Diane Longines often choose to compete in this race to keep their foot in competition ahead of the autumn's main events. 


This was the case for several winners of the Diane, such as La Cressonnière in 2016 and Avenir Certain in 2014. 


The race was given Group 2 status in 2011 and the standard of competition has not stopped rising since.

courses remarquables 7.jpg

SUNDAY 19TH AUGUST

HARAS DE FIRMAMENTO PRIX DE POMONE


This Group 2 race, one of the highest standards of flat race, is reserved for mares aged 3 and over, and is run over a distance of a mile and 4 ½ furlongs, which requires great tenacity. 


The starters in this race need to be able to sustain their speed throughout the race before mustering up a burst of acceleration on the home straight. 

courses remarquables 3.jpg

SUNDAY 19TH AUGUST

DARLEY PRIX MORNY

Crowns the best young sprinter


This sprint race is run over a short distance of 6 furlongs, reaching speeds of nearly 60 km/h (40mph) past the finishing post. 


The young mounts have under a minute – the time is takes to complete the course – to stand out! 


This race is well-known across the Atlantic, with American horses travelling across the pond to take part, such as Lady Aurelia, the defending champion, who triumphed at Ascot (England) in June, and No Nay Never in 2015. Who will be the star of the show in 2018?

SUNDAY 19TH AUGUST

DARLEY PRIX KERGORLAY

A real test of endurance


This is one of very few events in the flat racing calendar to be run over such a long distance: a mile and 7 furlongs! 


Lining up in the starting gates are horses aged 3 and over with enough stamina to triumph over this gruelling course. 


The race also acts as preparation for the Melbourne Cup in Australia! In 2010 and 2014 respectively, Américain (a French horse, despite its name!) and Protectionist (Germany) won the Darley Prix Kergolay - Melbourne Cup double.

courses remarquables 9.jpg

SUNDAY 19TH AUGUST

DARLEY PRIX JEAN ROMANET

A race for confirmed champions


This Group 1 horse race is reserved for females aged 4 and over, the age of experience in gallopers! 


The horses that stand out in this mile and 2 furlong event will go on to compete in the most important races of the autumn, namely the Qatar Arc Trials, which serve as a dress rehearsal for the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend.

SUNDAY 26TH AUGUST

LUCIEN BARRIÈRE GRAND PRIX DE DEAUVILLE


This race is in the Group 2 category, one of the highest classifications in flat racing. It is one of the Meeting's most richly-rewarded races, with prize money of €200,000 to be shared out between the first five finishers. It is reserved for 3-year-old English thoroughbreds and is run over the unusual distance of a mile and 4 ½ furlongs, which requires the participants to juggle their speed and stamina. 


The winner of this race often sets its sights on racing in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, which will take place the 1st weekend of October at ParisLongchamp.
