Festival Weekend in Deauville

Deauville, a favourite holiday destination for Parisians, has golden beaches, designer boutiques, gourmet dining and casinos. Our visit to Deauville coincides with the famous Yearling Sales that commence on Saturday 15th August and finish on Tuesday 18th August. This is the ideal opportunity to savour the unique atmosphere of the Sales.

Deauville hosts top quality racing throughout August and during this weekend the feature races are the Group 1 Prix Jacques Le Marois and the Group II Prix Guillaume d'Ornano. In 2014 the Prix Jacques Le Marois was won in impressive style by Kingman, trained by John Gosden and ridden by James Doyle, who beat Anodin by 2 ½ lengths with Olympic Glory in third place. The Prix Guillaume d'Omano, for 3 year old horses, is run over 1 ½ miles and in 2014 the race was won by Gailo Chop.
