A racetrack that features harness racing is located at the Avenue Michel d’Ornano 14390 Cabourg France, 3 kilometers from the seafront, on the coast of Normandy. The company was founded in 1928 by General Gossard, who organized three meetings in all disciplines. However, by 1974, the sand track was constructed, and the site started to devote exclusively to Trotting races. In 1991, they started to organize night meetings, and the reason for their reputation as a renowned Norman Petit Vincennes, as it attracts the best trotters in France because of its premier night races. The facility is directly managed by the Société du Cheval Française (French Horse Society), the Paris-based mother company for trotting races.
