The Beaumont de Lomagne racecourse is a major horse trotting venue in France. Often referred to as the Petit Vincennes, this racecourse has excellent facilities for the public and professionals.
The Société des Courses de Beaumont was founded in 1875 by Baron Alphonse de Ruble, who set up the first racecourse in the lower town. In 1925, it was moved to Bordevieille and since then, a number of improvements have been made: pink sand track, stands, changing rooms, timing equipment, video monitoring room, panoramic restaurant, 85 boxes, a weighing station...
All of these features make the Beaumont racecourse a must-visit for horse racing fans.
