One of the youngest domestic racecourses, where the first raceday was held in 1997. Today there is a modern multifunctional complex, which, in addition to racing, offers a variety of sports, cultural and social activities for the general public. The entire racetrack is well laid out and, in addition to flat racing, the track also allows for attractive steeplechase competitions. From the Velebudice spoil heap there is a very nice view of the whole area of Most and its surroundings. In recent years, the Most track has hosted 6 to 7 racedays per year. In May, the classic race for fillies, the Czech 1000 Guineas, is held here.
A shuttle bus service is available for visitors running along the route:
The exact times of the shuttle service are always listed for individual events held at the Hippodrome. The shuttle service is free of charge!
From the train and bus station you can take tram No. 2 to OD Prior (4th stop), which is the boarding station of the shuttle service.
Simply enter the route to the "Parkoviště Hipodrom" in the navigation. It will lead you to the large car park right at the entrance to the complex.
For the convenience of visitors, the hippodrome offers two car parks with a total capacity of 900 vehicles. Both parking areas are paved grass surfaces and are located directly at the access road to the hippodrome, in front of the entrance to the venue. The parking fee is 50 CZK on race days and free besides the racedays.

Footballgolf (in operation except on racedays)
Fotbalgolf is the newest and first-class sports game that combines the popular world sports of football, golf and mini-golf. It is a technical, competitive and above all addictive game that combines the passion and power of football with the elegance and tradition of golf. Footballgolf is for people of all ages and sporting levels. To win, you have to kick the soccer ball off the tee, pass various types of obstacles in as few strokes as possible and then place the ball in the hole at the end of the course. The person who has taken the fewest kicks after going through all 18 holes is the winner. The game is played in teams of up to 4 players and usually lasts between 1 and 2 hours.
In-line track (in operation except on racedays)
In order to expand the sports activities of the visitors of the complex, an in-line track was built in 2008, which is 3370 m long with a high quality asphalt surface. 1.5 km of the track is bidirectional and 5 m wide, in the remaining 1870 m the track continues in one direction with a width of 3 m. The in-line track has an interesting shape according to the racetrack, which it describes from the outer circuit. Its parameters suit the organisation of races. The track has been received with great interest and enthusiasm by skaters.

What is the best time to arrive at the racecourse? When does the raceday start?
If you want to catch the first race in peace, it is ideal to plan your arrival 30 to 45 minutes before the start. The racetrack area, including the refreshment stands and restaurant, is open two hours before the start of the first race. The start times for the event and the start of the first race can always be found in the event details.
How long do the races last? How many races are run?
One race lasts on average one and a half minutes, a steeplechase around five to nine minutes. There are usually 8 races during a raceday with 30 minute breaks. The total duration of a raceday is around 3.5 hours.
The races are divided, among other things, according to performance categories, the main race (the highest category of a given raceday) is usually placed in the second part of the programme, but only exceptionally at the very end.
What can I expect during the raceday?
How can I watch the races? Do I need binoculars?
The best overview will be from the grandstand. Positions in the higher rows will give you a better view, while the lower rows, or the pavement in front of the grandstand, will give you closer contact with the horses in the homestraight. It is a good idea to take your chosen seat in the grandstand about 5 to 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the race. Our tip: if you want to watch the race like a proper "turfman", equip yourself with binoculars and you will have the racing action in the palm of your hand even from the height of the grandstand.
Where can I find out in advance which horses will run in the races?
All important information not only about the participants of the races, but also about the entire schedule of the raceday is contained in the Racing card, which you can buy right at the entrance to the racetrack. Start lists for the weekend races are closed on Tuesday of the week and can be found in advance on our website in the race details.
How and where can I place my bet?
Betting is an important part of horse racing and can be done directly at the racetrack at marked places. Bets are usually placed after you have seen the horses before the race in the paddock.
Is there a live streaming of all the races?
If you are not able to attend the raceday directly, you can watch the stream HERE >>
The Most hippodrome is part of the Velebudice Reclamation Park, which is one of the top projects of the so-called Czech Reclamation School, which is respected worldwide. In 1973, in connection with considerations on the use of the Velebudice spoil heap, a plan was drawn up to build a reclamation park as a recreation and health area, the dominant feature of which would be a racecourse.
