Horse racing or trotting racing around Brussels are

Can anyone help ? I am on holiday in Brussels from 27th. July to 1st. August 2011 and would like to attend a Horse race meeting or a Trotting meeting. Many thanks Peter. In or around the Brussels area.

1. Re: Horse racing or trotting racing around Brussels are

The former hippodromes around Brussels, in Boitsfort, Sterrebeek and Groenendael, are no longer operating. The first 2 are now golf courses, as is the one (Wellington) at Ostende, leaving only the ones in Waregem (between Ghent and Kortrijk), Mons and Tongeren as venues for racing in Belgium.

The websites www.trotting.be and www.trottingint.be/condition//2011-03.pdf give these events between the dates you mention:

27/07/2011 MONS Hippodrome de Wallonie à Mons (Weds - showjumping, 19:00)

29/07/2011 MONS Hippodrome de Wallonie à Mons (Fri - racing 16:30)

30/07/2011 WAREGEM Felix de Ruyck (Sat - racing 16:00) (NB doesn't seem to show up on the racetrack's own website!)

31/07/2011 WAREGEM Felix de Ruyck (Sun - racing 14:15 )

For information on the hippodrome in Mons, see opt.be/informations/…47221.html and for Waregem, - see http://www.hippodroomwaregem.be/nl/kalender
