As it happens every year, the Paris Grand Steeple-Chase is back on May 16 and 17, 2020 on the green track of the Auteuil Hippodrome. The most prestigious race in Europe brings together an exceptional range of highly skilled horses and jockeys. Last year, about 30,000 viewers came behind the balustrade. Here we go for the full gallop!

It’s one of the most expected horse races in Paris. Since 1874 and its creation, the Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris 2020 remains a legendary race. Bringing together the best steeple-chaser horses from 5 years old, and jockeys from all over the world, it became THE reference in terms of obstacle race. And brace yourself. The edition 2020 is about to be explosive!

This year, it’s on a weekend, May 16 to 17, 2020, that the race will take place. Still at the legendary Auteuil hippodrome, of course. It’s the queen horse race, but also the toughest and the most uncertain one. Riders will have to ride a 6000m long track featuring 23 obstacles, each harder than the other.

It goes from the “simple” fence to the “rail-ditch and fence” also known as the “juge de paix” in French (the hardest obstacle of the race, requiring a 5-m jump) and the double fence. For seven minutes, horses will be challenged while jockeys will have to cope with the assaults of their contestants.

Moreover, the Paris Grand Steeple-Chase 2020 remains the exclusive occasion to discover the horse sport world the best way possible. Furthermore, the iconic race is followed by a party at the Auteuil hippodrome. Still as spectacular! For two days in a row filled with high-level sport, let’s relax a bit. To give you a promising foretaste, we offer you to relive last year’s race in the heart of the action. One thing is sure: here’s a thrilling weekend in Paris!
