Hitting a nice jackpot is every player's dream.

Ten of them, who have become big winners of the PMU, know what emotions it brings, they who were invited last Sunday to the Paris-Vincennes racecourse to attend the prestigious Prix de Paris.

An initiative that has been in place for two years.

Accompanied by their loved ones, the happy racers, whose winnings ranged between 102,949 and 349,786 euros, experienced a program rich in emotion with the discovery of the legendary enclosure, scene of the trotters' greatest exploits.

Among them: Yannick, the only one to have managed to win with a Spot bet, a game where the five numbers are chosen at random by an algorithm.

“I had a two-euro ticket left to bet,” explains the 54-year-old man from Concarneau (Finistère) to justify his choice.

It was last November 14.

When I passed my ticket through the terminal to check if it was a winner, it was written on the screen: winnings too high, please contact the main cash register.

The manager of the Bar-PMU du Lin, where I usually go, then told me that I had won 157,000 euros.

“I have finished paying for my house in Dordogne”

Nothing to destabilize this long-time player, who has already won very nice sums four times in the 1990s. “I was on cloud nine the following days,” he admits.

With the money pocketed, I first had a small reception with my friends from PMU.

And then I bought myself a car.

The maintenance manager at an educational complex remembers making the same investment thanks to his winning tickets at the age of 21.

“But I dented it a few weeks later,” he jokes.

Before adding: “It doesn’t change a life and doesn’t stop you from going to work.

In the assembly, everyone is avid racing player.

Alain admits to making combinations of 42 euros in the flagship game of PMU, a tactic which allowed him to win more than 200,000 euros.

“I finished paying for my house in Dordogne and I tried to shelter my loved ones,” confides the former Parisian.

But again, there is no question of stopping working.

During the visit to the stables, Philippe, 66, is in the front row to listen to the explanations of the Trotteur Français teams.

But as he approaches Ampia Mede Sm's box, his eyes light up.

“She is one of the horses that allowed me to win,” explains enthusiastically the one who multiplied his winnings by 10 with the new Max option of Quinté +, allowing him to collect more than 100,000 euros on December 10.

The entourage of the mare, title holder of the Prix de Paris, let him enter her box in order to have his photo taken with the Italian champion.

“It’s impressive because it’s the first time I’ve approached a crack like her.

“I see them every day and there, I meet them in real life”

The highlight of the meeting is approaching, and here are the protagonists of the day thrown onto the bus which will follow the Prix de Paris peloton.

Inside, several played number 8, worn by Hussard du Landret and were heard when he went on the offensive.

A new winning ticket for those who trusted Benoït Robin's resident but none of them managed to discover the right combination of the quinté in order which brings in 36,772.80 euros.

Then comes the time for photos with the great drivers of the Parisian dirt, their faces covered in black, due to the cinder coating of the track.

In heaven, Yannick and Antoine pose with Gabriele Gelormini, just after his victory with Cobra Killer Gar, Anthony Barrier and Matthieu Abrivard.

“I see them every day on my program and there, I meet them in real life,” concludes Yannick, about a day which will remain engraved in the memory of all the invited players.
