THE FIRST BIG TEST OF THE SEASON

The Emirates Poules d'Essai des Poulains and des Pouliches are two eagerly-anticipated races that crown the best 3-year-old colt and filly over the mile distance.  


These two horse races are decisive to how the rest of the season pans out, and are an almost-obligatory rite of passage for any illustrious racing career.  

 

The Emirates Poules d'Essai des Poulains and des Pouliches are the first two events of the EpiqE Series championship, a circuit that groups together France’s 14 most prestigious horse races.

THE FIRST CHAPTER OF THE STORY

The EMIRATES Poule d’Essai des Poulains is the first Group 1 race of the year for 3-year-old colts and is run over a mile.

The equivalent of the 2000 Guineas Stakes, this event is the younger generation’s first taste of the big-time!
In this first challenge of the season, the colts demonstrate whether they have the potential to dazzle over the longer distance of a mile and 2 ½ furlongs in the Qipco Prix du Jockey Club or whether they will stay as milers.

It is an important crossroads in the season, the first chapter of a story that will run until October.

Having been held at Deauville racecourse the last two years, the 131st edition of the Emirates Poule d’Essai des Poulains was coming back to ParisLongchamp racecourse on 13th May 2018!

THE FIRST BIG TEST OF THE SEASON

An important race in view of the Prix de Diane Longines, the Emirates  Poule d’Essai des Pouliches is reserved for 3-year-old fillies and is  run over the mile distance.

The first big test of the season for these fillies, this race is decisive for the rest of the season! Only 25 winners of the Emirates Poule d’Essai des Pouliches have managed the double with the Prix de Diane Longines, making them the queens of their generation.

Held on Deauville racecourse for the last two years, the 131st edition of the Emirates Poule d’Essai des Pouliches was run at ParisLongchamp on 13th May 2018!

THE NEW APP THAT IS REVOLUTIONISING THE WORLD OF HORSE RACING  

Thanks to the geolocation of horses running in races, you can now follow the runners’ position in real time to an unprecedented level of accuracy (less than 25cm compared with the metre that is currently the case in other sporting disciplines) whether you are watching from home or on the racecourse.

The second-screen “EpiqE Tracking” app is your invitation to a brand new, immersive experience!

Live 3D immerses you in the thick of the action as you follow the race from the horse of your choice. Benefit from unprecedented 360° viewing angles throughout the race:

  • Access an abundance of real-time information during the race: position, speed, distance behind the leading horse, acceleration, deceleration, etc. 
  • Immediate access to Replay 3D allows you to re-watch and analyse the whole race: the exact distance run, a better understanding of a horse’s performance and its jockey’s strategical decisions, etc.
  • You can even use a virtual reality (VR) headset for a 100% immersive experience: swap horses with a simple head movement!

The “EpiqE Tracking” app is available for free on iPhone and iPad from the iTunes store, as well as on Android devices from the Google Play Store.
