  • We were there during several day "open doors" day of the horse kind. But our favorite moments are during the night. The people there are very friendly and have dinner there during the races is really nice. The atmosphere is unique and very nice location.

  • We own harness horses in the USA so we were thrilled to see how the French race. We were impressed with the beautiful glass to track table side restaurants. We were seated in the Sulky Restaurant recently renamed something else, but they still called it the Sulky. We only spoke English and took a taxi from downtown Paris ( about 25 Euros for taxi each way). We needed not speak any French. We were able to order steak and fries and Coke Lites and Pelligrino. We were able to bet and win a few. The racing was fabulous and the crowd unbelievable! On our way out we stopped at the boutique and bought a hoodie and two LeTrot hats. When we were ready to leave it was a little complicated getting someone to understand that we wanted to call for a taxi, but one of the security guards let us go to the jockeys club and a lady there ordered us a cab which only took ten minutes to arrive. It was a wonderful night!
  • The hippos are quite slow at this one. The other hippos are faster! I loveeee Hippos, they are so favorite for me! Fast or slow. They are the best thing.
  • Have only been there a couple times, but worth it if you are a racing fan and can catch some live races.
  • Don't answer me on the phone when i'm calling them and start speak english.. I wan´t to buy tickets to Prix d'Amérique 2013 and cant find where to buy.
