“Really good fun, if you like that sort of thing”
Review of Hippodrome Cabourg

Hippodrome Cabourg
Ranked #5 of 12 things to do in Cabourg
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 November 2013

I hadn't been to a race course since a visit to Longchamps some 30 years ago and I'd quite forgotten what it was like. The Cabourg hippodrome hosts national events so there is a lot of quality action on the card on race nights. We attended an evening of ten or so races, all of which were trotters except for one (which was the main event of the night, with the highest value purse). Facilities for the motley crowd are crude but adequate - there are more refined settings available inside but access is limited. The ticket windows are plentiful and it took only a few minutes between each race to place a wager. I could not figure out how to place wagers on races in advance and perhaps one can't. Perhaps the only serious drawback of the entire evening was the lack of a "trou normand" which I desperately wanted upon arrival after having wolfed down a large dinner in order to be on time for the first event! The bar sold only beer (to the plebs at least)!
