Located in Saône-et-Loire, the racecourse Cluny takes place in a town known worldwide because of its abbey. It was created in 1814 after the installation of a repository of stallions by Napoleon I in 1807. The horse becomes over the centuries one of the important elements of the development of the city, and a horse racing center, Equivallée, is even created in 2008 by the department.
The Cluny Racing Society has managed the site since its founding in 1881. It has been behind the creation of a new building in 1977 and the increase in the number of races over the years. The Cluny racetrack is home to three types of racing, trotting, flat and obstacle course with steeple and cross country. The site also has restaurant facilities, relaxation with benches and very comfortable stands.
Seven meetings are organized between May and September, with 7 to 8 races per event.
