Watch Racing From France
France offers some of the most diverse horse racing in the world with a wide choice of flat racing, steeplechase racing (over jumps and hurdles) and even harness racing.
The bulk of professional racing to be held in the country is overseen by the governing body of France Galop with the organisation having a membership of nearly 10,000 horse owners, trainers, jockeys, breeders, and officials.
That gives you a sense of the scale of action available in the country as does the fact that there are almost 6,500 races held annually at French race tracks.
Despite all of that it can be incredibly difficult to watch live horse racing from France on British television as even if you have an expensive subscription to a pay tv sports channel that features horse racing only a select number of meetings and races will be shown live.
If you are trying to watch one of the French classics, such as the Prix du Jockey Clubs (founded in 1836 and equivalent of the Epsom Derby), the Poule d’Essai (found in 1840 and equivalent of the 1000 Guineas and the 2000 Guineas), the Prix de Diane (founded in 1843 and equivalent of the Epsom Oaks), the Prix Royal-Oak (founded in 1861 and equivalent of the St Leger Stakes), the Grand Prix de Paris (founded in 1863), the Poule d’Essai des Poulains (founded in 1883 and equivalent of the 2000 Guineas) and the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches (founded in 1883 and equivalent of the 1000 Guineas) or if you are wanting to watch one of the major races such as the Arc, the chances are that you will be able to watch along live on British television.
It may of course be the case that you need and expensive and ongoing subscription to do so or that you need to make the long trip to your nearest bookmakers in the hope that they are showing the action.
If you are wanting to watch many of the 1000’s of other matches from French horse racing, the chances are that it will be a struggle but thankfully you can now pick and choose to watch a choice of many of the great races from France via the fantastic live streaming services that are featured on this page.
If you do decide to watch along with the great racing action from France, you will of course need to be aged 18 or over and you must make a bet on the action that matches the minimum stake, but you can then watch the races that you want to watch from France all year around.
