The “1,2,3, Riders Challenge”

The OH Racing! event benefits from significant support from various racehorse trainer associations and from the Jockey Association. Within the framework of this day, an original challenge is set for the staff who take care of the horses on a daily basis, and who ride the gallops every morning in Europe’s largest racehorse training centre, which is based in Chantilly.
On Saturday 1st July at 7pm, the men and women who work in the racing stables are invited onto Chantilly racecourse to take part in the “1,2,3, Riders Challenge”. This fun competition brings the people who usually work behind the scenes of the racing world into the spotlight. Each Chantilly-based stable can enter up to nine participants, who take part in three team challenges

The competition will be held between the races, and is sure to receive enthusiastic support from the spectators in the stands. The competitors are invited to bring some of their own supporters along, and a bonus prize will be awarded to the team that gets the loudest cheers. The “1,2,3 Riders” cup will be awarded to the winning stable at the end of the meeting, and it will be up for grabs again at the next edition of OH Racing!

Do not miss this unique opportunity to see the people who work behind the scenes in the racing world and witness some friendly competition between the Chantilly-based stables. Bring your family and friends along to support your favourite team and enjoy a memorable day at Chantilly racecourse on 1st July.
