Major Partners

Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club
The Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) and France Galop, a symbiosis of great racing cultures

The Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) was established in the early 1960s and was officially made public in 1975. QREC is mandated with representing, promoting and advancing equine and equestrian initiatives from grassroots programmes to the international arena. Focused on equestrian sport and horse welfare, QREC is dedicated on promoting Qatar as a world-class hub for horse racing and a leader in the pure Arabian breed.

QREC works in collaboration with local bodies dedicated to achieving excellence in planning, regulating and developing Qatar’s racing industry to reflect the world’s best practices.

By harnessing innovation and excellence and driven by professionalism and integrity, QREC hopes to bring the joy of racing and breeding to the wider public.

Longines, the “Timekeeper” of International Racing

The Swiss watchmaker Longines has been rooted in the world of sport since 1878. In France, they are currently the official timekeepers at the racecourses of Chantilly, Deauville and Longchamp. The Prix de Diane Longines, run every June at Chantilly, perfectly represents this elegant partnership, mirroring performance and precision. The Prix de l’Opera, a championship race for fillies and mares run during the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe week-end, is also sponsored by the brand.

In addition, Longines is a partner of the International Federation of Horse Racing Authorities and sponsors the International Classifications as well as the International Jockeys’ Championship. They are also associated with top class racing events in Australia, the UAE, Qatar, South America, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Ireland, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and China, as well as in the United States.

Through these partnerships, Longines is associated with the most prestigious horse racing meetings across the globe and, as a result, merits the title of the “timekeeper” of racing.

Official Partners


Barrière and the horse’ world is a link that has lasted for 111 years. As a major partner of the most prestigious equestrian events such as the Meeting de Deauville Barrière, the Group has always had a special relationship with France Galop, both at Deauville and at ParisLongchamp, where Barrière was the partner of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe between 1999 and 2007.

Its proximity to racing was forged in Deauville, a renowned horse racing destination that saw the birth of Barrière in 1912 and the Deauville-La Touques racecourse in 1863.
Each year the Lucien Barrière Grand Prix de Deauville, the final event of the Meeting and a springboard to the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, perpetuates the union between two great brands: France Galop and Barrière.

Mercedes-Benz Paris

Mercedes-Benz Paris, Official Vehicle of « L’hippodrome en Famille » and « JeuXdi by ParisLongchamp »
Mercedes-Benz Paris, the distribution subsidiary of the prestigious Mercedes-Benz Group brand, is the official partner and vehicle for all the dates of two events taking place at France Galop racecourses
France Galop racecourses: “L’Hippodrome en Famille”, the ideal outing for children, combining racing and entertainment, and “JeuXdi by ParisLongchamp”, the most popular after-work events in Paris.

Through these operations, Mercedes-Benz Paris wishes to continue to promote its position as the e-mobility reference in the Paris region and to highlight its range of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, which is the widest on the market.

Haras d'Etreham

Depuis 2019, cette grande maison de l’élevage français avec ses étalons de renoms que sont le leader européen de l’obstacle SAINT DES SAINTS, le champion Steeple-Chaser GOLIATH DU BERLAIS, l’étoile montante de l’obstacle MASKED MARVEL ou encore le jeune étalon et unique lauréat de Gr1 par Camelot au haras, LATROBE.

Le haras normand est le partenaire officiel du Haras d’Etreham Prix Magalen Bryant (Gr2), course de haies réservées aux pouliches de 3 ans (sur 3 600 m), dotée d’une allocation globale de 175 000 € grâce à l’apport du partenariat, se déroule chaque année sur l’hippodrome d’Auteuil, le samedi du week-end des 48H de l’Obstacle début novembre. A cette occasion, le Haras récompensera l’entourage de la pouliche gagnante et offrira à son propriétaire une saillie de l’un de ses étalons d’obstacle.

Le Haras d’Etreham poursuit son engagement sur le plat en devenant le partenaire du Prix Jean Prat, Gr.1 pour les mâles de 3 ans sur 1400 m à Deauville.

Coolmore, the multinational Thoroughbred

Rare are the thoroughbred breeders in the world that don’t know the name of the Irish stud, Coolmore Stud. Created in Ireland but now also with farms in the United States and Australia, the organisation’s origins date to the 1970s and the partnership of three men: Robert Sangster, John Magnier, and Vincent O’Brien.
The expertise, resources and ambition of these three combined that saw them buy the first offspring of the soon to be legendary stallion Northern Dancer, have changed the history of the breed. Selected and subsequently trained by O’Brien, financed by Sangster, and managed by Magnier, these gave Coolmore Stud the firepower to quickly reach the summits of breeding and racing.
In 2016, the operation recorded a never before achieved feat in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe when owning the first three home, Found, Highland Reel, and Order Of St. George all homebred offspring of their multiple times Champion Sire, Galileo, a grandson of Northern Dancer.

Having been partnered with several investors over the years, Coolmore Stud is still managed by Mr. John Magnier, who has continually developed and evolved the operation to keep it at the forefront of the industry. Horses bred or bought by Coolmore Stud have won nearly all the major races across the world, and their stallions are amongst those that are the most in demand across both hemispheres.

Today, Coolmore, the flagship of Irish breeding, has around 60 stallions spread between its three studs. This major stud has been a partner of France Galop since 2006 and supports one of the spring stepping stones for 3-year-old fillies race at ParisLongchamp, the St Mark’s Basilica Coolmore Prix Saint-Alary.

Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard

Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard, taking a principal role in the Prix Jacques Le Marois
Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard, situated in the Orne, is one of the most important cradles of French breeding. It is here that Marcel Boussac bred his champions, becoming one of the most important owner-breeders in Europe from the 1920s up until the 70s. This included winning the Prix Jacques Le Marois 10 times, the summit of the summer season for milers.
In 1979 the stud came under the ownership of Stavros Niarchos, one of the most well-known Greek shipping magnates after the war. By modernising the stud but keeping with its traditions, his colours were carried to victory eight times in the Jacques Le Marois.

One of these winners, Miesque, one of the most eclectic fillies of the time, won the race in 1987 and a year later before producing some top-class stallions as well as a winner of the Jacques Le Marois herself, East Of The Moon, who went on to become an excellent broodmare herself.

The stud and the race have been closely intertwined throughout their history, with the current sponsorship of the Haras de Fresnay-Le-Buffard – Prix Jacques Le Marois dating back to 1986 (the oldest partnership in French racing)…

The new sponsorship of Prix Morny

The Sumbe group is owned by Nurlan Bizakov, who breeds and owns racehorses (he also stands stallions and currently has about 50 horses in training). In addition to the historic Hesmonds Stud in England, Sumbe has two studs in France: the Haras de Monfort & Préaux (bought in 2019) and Mézeray (2021) that stretch over 350 hectares between the regions of Orne and Calvados. These stud farms are the home to four outstanding stallions: Mishriff, Golden Horde, De Treville and Recorder, together with 50 broodmares and boarders. Last year Sumbe celebrated a Group 1 victory as an owner/breeder when Belbek lifted the prestigious Qatar Prix de Jean-Luc Lagardère.

In the wake of a breakout past season, they wish to further establish themselves as a long-term player and partner of the industry while asserting our support to this beautiful, beloved game which never leaves us short of bedazzlement. The Meeting de Deauville Barrière, with its very international appeal, is a good reflection of Sumbe’s indentity.”

Abu Dhabi Sports Councils

Abu Dhabi Sports Council was established in 2006 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. The Abu Dhabi Sports Council is aligned to the emirate’s leadership vision to develop sport and youth activities. It organises many sporting events in Abu Dhabi and internationally, including golf, Formula 1, triathlon, sailing, cycling and horse racing.

Abu Dhabi Sports Council has become the title partner of Emirates Poules d’Essai, the day when two of the most important events in the French program are held: Emirates Poules d’Essai des Poulains and Emirates Poule d’Essai des Pouliches. The partnership with the Abu Dhabi Sports Council will also include the European Arabian Horse Cup, a Group 1 race for thoroughbred Arabian horses and part of The President of the UAE Cup Series.

American Racing Channel

The American Racing Channel (ARC) exports worldwide the images and betting licenses of the equestrian institutions of the main thoroughbred breeding and racing countries of South America, in particular Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Chile.
His vision and leadership have demonstrated his commitment to the development of the horse racing industry.
Horse racing in these countries has undergone a singular effort since the interwar period, and under the joint influence of Europe and North America, their breeding has developed greatly. The Latin American racing program was very well received by the French public when Equidia, the racing and horse channel, began broadcasting its meetings in France.
For a long time, its objective has been to bring together French and South American breeders and racetracks to promote the activity and its benefits are proven, being since 2012, the official partner of the Prix Maurice de Gheest (Gr1), one of the summer championships in Deauville.
