3 Jockey Championships

JOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS


The top jockeys defend their title!

Every summer, the Meeting de Deauville Barrière attracts the world’s top jockeys to Deauville.

The Meeting – which boasts the most concentrated sporting programme in Europe between 2nd and 28th August, including no fewer than seven Group I races, the highest category of horse race – is an opportunity for jockeys to demonstrate their racing knowledge and expertise.  

The jockeys that come to Deauville in August will do battle in the traditional Jockey Championships. In 2022, the top four jockeys from the 2021 edition will be on a quest to retain their title!

As part of this Championships, a rankings table will be set up for the whole duration of the Meeting, with points awarded for wins and places in each race. You can keep an eye on how the rankings are evolving on the board in the racecourse or on the @FranceGalop social media pages.

Four jockeys to watch at the Meeting de Deauville Barrière

The four jockeys who finished at the top of the Jockey Championships rankings in 2021 – Mickaël Barzalona, Cristian Demuro, Christophe Soumillon and Maxime Guyon – will be honoured at Deauville racecourse.

To find out more about these top jockeys and their careers, and to see how they are getting on at the Meeting, scan the QR codes on the totems set up on the racecourse!  


Extra content on the @FranceGalop social media pages


Every week, a star jockey will give a glimpse into their daily life, sharing what goes on behind the scenes, on the gallops and at competitions, along with their best memories from the Meeting de Deauville Barrière. The jockeys will also tell you about the different jobs in the racing industry, introducing you to the people they work with on a daily basis. There are around a hundred professions involved in every race day!

All of these immersive videos can be found on the @FranceGalop social media pages, carrying the hashtags #BestRacing #Deauville. What is more, Equidia will publish the jockeys’ statistics and honours lists, which avid racing fans always enjoy studying.


How the points are tallied in the 2022 Jockey Championships


For every race held as part of the Meeting de Deauville Barrière, the jockeys who finish in first, second and third place will be awarded points.

In the Group races, the highest category of horse race, the number of points allocated for wins and places will be multiplied!

Every jockey will have the same aim: to reach the top of the Championship rankings!


POINTS TALLY:

Points scale:
- 1st place: 5 points
- 2nd place: 3 points
- 3rd place: 1 point

Weighting for Group races:

- Group 1: x 4
- Group 2: x 3
- Group 3: x 2




The jockeys race for the charity of their choice

At the 2022 event, we are adding a little extra motivation for the jockeys as they vie to be the Meeting’s top jockey: they will all race for the charity of their choice.

The winner of the Championships will be awarded a cheque for 12,000 euros by France Galop and its partners (PMU, Equidia and Paris Turf), to be donated to charity.


Jockeys Mickaël Barzalona and Christophe Soumillon have chosen the Au-Delà Des Pistes charity, which promotes programmes to retrain retired racehorses, Cristian Demuro has chosen the Association des Jockeys, which supports professional jockeys, while Maxime Guyon is racing for the Petits Princes charity, which makes dreams come true for sick children.

Head to the racecourse entrance at 11.30am.


Prix Rothschild

An outstanding sprint race on Deauville’s stunning home straight!

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!


Deauville-La Touques racecourse is well known for sprint races down its straight track.

SUNDAY 7TH AUGUST 2022


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

TUESDAY 9TH AUGUST 2022


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 2022, 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

The day’s racing action includes two Group 1 races – the highest standard of horse race – for purebred Arabs: the Al Rayyan Cup and the Doha Cup.
