  • famous Hippodrome, a lot of races during the season in flat or harnessed during the day or at night, don't need to be a great race for a good time, the setting is very nice.

  • The atmosphere is at the top, players, horses that are absolutely stunning soar under your eyes, their dresses and their muscles scintiillent under the spotlight during the night races, it's absolutely gorgeous. It quickly took to the game and this without being a games addict, it's just friendly, then when your horse comes out ahead, it's just a pure moment of happiness with a very small issue. A great place to do at least once in his life, the food are great!

  • Not too crowded. Any difficulty to play. A nice framework. Just track trot that is a bit far.

  • Very nice track perfect for the little bet with his friends (from € 2) I take off one star for the lack of parking space. Otherwise excellent atmosphere

  • For anyone who wants to dive into the world of horse racing, I can recommend a visit. The reasonable price of admission is worth the pleasure in any case. The gastronomic offer is rather mixed. If you come to Vichy should visit the track anyway. There are plenty of parking spaces.
