Grand Steeple Chase de Paris
One of the most beautiful horse races in the most beautiful city in the world!
In May, when the weather is summery, the Hippodrome d'Auteuil hosts the Grand Steeple Chase de Paris, this obstacle race considered mythical by the greatest in the business. This reference racecourse, located in the west of Paris, in the Bois de Boulogne and close to the Roland Garros stadium, is the highest venue for hurdle racing in France. The nine biggest races in hurdles and steeplechase are held on its tracks.
For this year 2022, it is the weekend of 21 and 22 May that this long-awaited horse racing competition will take place. On a 6-kilometre course with 23 obstacles, each participant is a feat and only the best horses and jockeys are able to go all the way.
For two consecutive days, enjoy the beauty of high-level sport. In addition to the Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris, there are 10 hurdle races and 5 steeplechase races to watch. One of the best vantage points is certainly near the "judge of peace" obstacle. With a width of 4.10 m and a height of 1.60 m, it requires a real feat of strength to achieve a final victory. The direct view of the "Rivière des tribunes", a mythical obstacle at the Auteuil racecourse, is also an ideal position to enjoy the race.
An ideal family outing
This is a place that your children should enjoy. Many free activities are offered throughout the weekend. Carousel, free introduction to pony riding, big sack race, new generation rocking horse, big inflatable structure, funny and playful mini-games about the world of racing… Something to delight young and old alike.
