Once again, this year, many animations await you with four main themes: adrenaline, passion, sport and emotion. An astonishing cocktail to discover the magic of horse races world and spend a good family day.

Every Sunday, we find loads of animations at the Village Galop Kids directed by the famous mascots Sam & Willy! All day long, Sam the Jockey and Willy the horse accompany kids around educative fames to know everything about horses and horse races!
Each Sunday, 8 gallop races await you. Sprint race at Longchamp and obstacle race at Auteuil. During each session, you can support kids participating to the “graine de jockey” pony championship. On Shetland ponies, young budding jockeys face off one another to book a place for the final.
If it’s sunny, don’t hesitate to come and have an outdoor picnic. You can also opt for the catering offers on the spot. Lunch on the go, panoramic restaurant or gourmet pleasures, there is something for everyone. The kid menu to take away costs €6.90 and the larger one costs €8.90.
