This year, as the English Derby will be held on the following weekend, we are delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to visit Chantilly for the Prix du Jockey Club. The Prix du Jockey Club is one of the highlights of the French racing calendar. Chantilly, one of the most picturesque racecourses in the world creates a stunning setting with a backdrop of the magnificent Château with its landscaped park and the Grandes Ecuries (Great Stables), is situated approximately 30 kilometres north of Paris in the heart of the French countryside and is the main training centre for racehorses in France.
The Group I Prix du Jockey Club is equivalent to the Derby in England but run over the shorter distance of 2,100 metres (approximately 1 mile 2½ furlongs). The 2013 race was won in convincing style by the Andre Fabre trained favourite, Intello.
