Opened in 1873, the Auteuil Hippodrome in Paris is an 82-acre racetrack that caters exclusively for steeplechase races.

Enghien racecourse (The Hippodrome d'Enghien-Soisy) is located on the common just outside the tourist town of Enghien-les-Bains (see 'Bookmark' for page 16), in the northern suburbs of Paris. The racecourse was formally opened in 1879, with the trotting track being added in 1922.
