HORSE RACING IN VELKA CHUCHLE
Chuchle Arena Prague is the most important racecourse in the Czech Republic. It is located on the southern outskirts of Prague, on the left bank of the Vltava river, in the Velká Chuchle district. The season usually lasts from the beginning of April until the end of October and offers many important event days, as well as routine flat races. The most prestigious race is the Czech Derby, with which the first part of the racing season traditionally culminates at the end of June. The Derby together with two other classic tests of three-year-old horses – The Czech 2000 Guineas and Czech St Leger – form the classic Triple Crown. The European Jockeys Cup, an international event held in September, is also a very special raceday.
