Opening of France Galop racecourses in Paris

As Paris has become a “green zone”, France Galop is delighted to confirm that from next week onwards meetings at Auteuil, ParisLongchamp and Saint-Cloud will go ahead as scheduled. Race meetings, however, will still be held behind closed doors.

If over the next few days, lockdown conditions regarding the organisation of race meetings were eased, France Galop teams would work as quickly as possible to open the gates of its racecourses to the public.
