  • Great afternoon spent in the family. Well thought and modern racetrack to big races... and indulge in some paris... only downside, underserved when it comes without a vehicle...

  • Atypical place, this immense Racecourse while concrete is the perfect place to see horse racing, we can even go down on the track side. The bleachers are double: outside and inside in inclement weather. There are also a bar, a restaurant and ATM for bet. We stayed a very good evening.

  • Around a theme we spent a wonderful day. Arrived early we were able to make several rounds of rides and several baptisms of ponies with ultra girls nice and motivated our daughter! The meal was friendly, at will, but a bit expensive compared to the quality / quantity. Shopping a real pleasure to discover IRL (in real life!). Thank you!

  • I was here for the odyssea run. Quite impressive location
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Great fun with the horses
  • Have only been there a couple times, but worth it if you are a racing fan and can catch some live races.
