2017 – Horse Racing

And the’re off! No, not a Brian Rix farce but a day at the races! Come and join us at Le Bouscat Hippodrome for lunch and a flutter.

The racecourse of Bordeaux le Bouscat hosts 31 meetings a year (over 230 races) including 20 nationals

Meet for Lunch

Meet for lunch at 12:00 in the highly acclaimed panoramic restaurant, La Table de l’Hippodrome, and enjoy a three course menus (either 25€ or 30€ excluding wine) whilst also enjoying an exceptional view of the course and the racing.

The Racing

After lunch we can go onto the terrace to continue following the racing and behind the stand is the paddock where you can check out the form of the horses before having a flutter. This particular event is a trot where the jockeys sit on a chariot behind the horse and the horses race at a fast trot. This is very peculiar to France, rarely seen at British meetings, so should be interesting for the uninitiated.
