172nd Waregem Koerse

Tuesday 27 August 2019

The biggest celebration of Belgian equestrian sport is coming back, for the 172nd edition!

On Tuesday, August 27, the Hippodrome of Waregem will, once again, welcome 40,000 visitors, including 6,500 VIPs, to cheer for the national and international elite of canter and trot racing.

As part of the Crystal Cup, the European Cross-country & Steeple Chase Challenge, Waregem Koerse is one of the most prestigious horse races in Europe.

The 172nd edition of Waregem Koerse offers a lot of novelties!

For example, the event will host two extra races this year: A flat canter and the Pro-Am Horse Race For Charity, a duo race in which companies race for charity. This will bring the total of races to 10 with a total prizemoney of no less than 326,000 euros! And for the younger ones there will also be a shetland pony race this year.

With 4 victories in the ING Grand Steeple Chase of Flanders, Taupin Rochelais is already one of the most legendary horses in the history of Waregem Koerse.

This year, he will try to achieve the impossible with a fifth victory in a row. This win would bring him closer to the legendary Redpath who holds the record of 7 wins. But we are referring to pre-war history, namely 1897. Five victories nowadays could be considered as a even higher sporting achievment.

Waregem Koerse is of course more than a top sporting event. The largest equestrian event in Belgium is the ideal mix of top sport, show, networking, and a pleasant afternoon among friends. In a few words, everyone is welcome at Waregem Koerse and you will find further information and tailormade opportunities further on this website!
