This Group 1 race, the highest standard of horse race, is reserved for mares aged 3 and over. It is run over a mile distance, making it ideal for speed.
This sprint is especially spectacular to watch because the field thunders down the home straight, just under the spectators’ noses, at speeds of over 60km/h!

SUNDAY 8TH AUGUST 2021


LARC Prix Maurice de Gheest

A rare confrontation between sprinters and milers.


This is one of the most hotly-anticipated races at the Meeting de Deauville Barrière, as it is one of very few races run over the intermediate distance of 6 ½ furlongs.


Because of its unusual distance, this race, which is run on the straight track, gives rise to an interesting and very rare confrontation between sprinters – horses that run best over a distance of 5 or 6 furlongs – and milers, whose favourite distance is a mile.  


This sprint always turns out to be spectacular!

60f99586f0ab2_LarcMauricedeGheest.jpg

Secours Populaire Day

Every year, the Meeting de Deauville Barrière invites a hundred or so disadvantaged children to the racecourse to enjoy a special day out courtesy of the Secours Populaire. Since these children are unable to go away on holiday, this gives them a chance to enjoy a fun day out and revel in the excitement of the races with their new friends. They can also take advantage of the superb entertainment on offer.


In 2021, a handful of these children will have the opportunity to learn even more about the racing world by watching the gallops on the racecourse in the morning!


An immersive experience for guaranteed smiles all round!


Two renowned events reserved for purebred Arabs
