100 years of horceracing in Velka Chuchle

Horseracing takes place in Velka Chuchle for 100 years already. There was a celebration of this anniversary at the stadium yesterday.

Contemporary materials show how imposing was the first meeting in Velka Chuchle 100 years ago: on 28th of September 1906 there were thousands of visitors.

After 1989 there was a less successful period, but in recent years the stadium prospers again and aspires to be one of the top European race-grounds.

Last year there were 21 racing days in Velka Chuchle and 171 races altogether. The prize for the winner was 18 693 300 CZK, which is more than any other Czech race-ground can offer. From the beginning of April till the end of October (with the break during the summer) there were about 50 – 60 thousands of visitors and the attendance gets better every year.
