Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris

At the Juddmonte, jockeys took centre stage!
The magic of racing is all down to the horses and their jockeys. In order to pay homage to the stars of the turf at the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris, the jockeys were treated like veritable celebrities: they took to the stage to be introduced to the crowds and gave live interviews and autograph signings. Throngs of fans were thrilled to meet these heroes of the racing world!

Let’s not forget the kids...
Various areas around the racecourse were reserved especially for children, giving them an unforgettable day out at the races with plenty of excitement and laughter!

Inside the Course: immerse yourself into the heart of racing!
Select your horse and enter the fray for a truly unforgettable racing experience.
Thanks to virtual reality technology, kids were able to put their feet into the stirrups of a jockey for a racing experience like no other!

The popular French game “Petits-Chevaux” came to life as racegoers were invited to play with giant pieces on a giant board. Nobody could resist throwing the dice and moving their horses around the colourful “racetrack”!

This fun-filled, informative activity gave kids an insight into the professions of
the racing world.
Children were invited to follow a circuit, taking part in a different activity for each member of the racing “family”: Jockey, Trainer, Owner and Breeder. Once they had completed all four activities, they were awarded a well-deserved “Perfect Jockey” certificate.

Merry-go-round (PassKid): Children were invited to take a turn on this
traditional merry-go-round for a true taste of the fairground.

Pony rides (PassKid):
Our docile ponies guided youngsters on their first
tentative steps towards becoming a champion jockey.
