Neuss Gallop and the horse racing tradition has been around since well over a century. In 2010, major investment in the race track, the new spectator stand and other facilities have created a truly high quality venue for a sport once considered to be the reserve of royalty and aristocracy. A stone’s throw away from the town centre, horse racing can be enjoyed throughout the winter season.
Whilst the atmosphere found in Hong Kong or Ascot may be somewhat different, the new all-weather track includes the familiar grass track as well as a 1,540 meter long and 16 meter wide sand track. Thus, a quality that is second to none is on offer to attract high class horses and cheering spectators.
Furthermore, forty-two masts with floodlights guarantee that races held in the evening are assured “as bright as day” illumination. So the new facilities make activities of such a popular spectator sport possible even in the darkest of months. Apparently gents, the ladies are admitted free of charge.
