Former racecourse Maisons-Laffitte, which was in operation until November of 2018, has been sold, France Galop announced on Wednesday.
Included in the sale to the Etablissement Public Foncier d’Ile-de-France (EPFIF) mandated by the City of Maisons-Laffitte, includes buildings on the site including the grandstand, as well as the racecourses proper, and the golf course installed in the centre of the courses. Negotiations for the sale of the property were held throughout 2022. The news of the successful sale was welcomed by France Galop.
Back in April of 2021, the City of Maisons-Laffitte had expressed interest in the site and in October of the same year, the Maisons-Laffitte City Council had given their approval for a purchase offer made by the EPFIF. Following negotiations with the various stakeholders, the members of the France Galop Committee voted in December 2022 to sell the Maisons-Laffitte racecourse.
