Overview
More
The racetrack of Pornichet is an important complex with an overall crowd capacity of 1,700 in the stadium, a panoramic restaurant which can seat 360 people, 6 privates lodges and a lounge for welcoming partners. Completely rebuilt in 2011, the racetrack is a modern and dynamic place with the public's well-being in mind and that of the horses with a racetrack in sand fibre which enables race meetings to be held in Winter and in the Summer. The biggest European stables come to compete in our race meetings : from canter on one of the most modern race tracks in fibre sand to trot on a track of 1250 m completely covered with sand. The racetrack of Pornichet is an unusual and exceptional place with 27 race meetings for the 2015 season. Canter and trot races are held throughout the year with professional jockeys. The majority of the race meetings are televised on the horse channel which counts an average of 450 000 viewers. We count 30,000 spectateurs yearly with a mixture of ardent racegoers and your average punter.

Nice to see the most popular sport in France, worth to go and bet, even though you know nothing about horse races. My advise , go and have a dinner in the restaurant while you see the horses racing.
