The Hippodrome Cepiere is located about 4 kilometres from the South-Western city of Toulouse and has a history dating back to 1866. The turf track has a circumference of just over 1870 metres with a straight run-in of 430 metres.
   Its principal race, a Group 3 race, is the Prix Fille De L'Air for fillies and mares which are 3 year olds and upwards and is run over 2100 metres, first contested in 1902 when won by Reine des Fleurs. It is run each November and has been won twice by Punta Gorda in 1906 and 1907, and by Ahohoney in 1984 and 1985. One of the most recent encounters in 2013 was won by the Jeremy Crocquevieille ridden Frine, trained by Juan Miguel Osorio and owned by the Duke of Alburquerque.  
The track also hosts 8 Listed races. In April the Prix Aymeri de Mauleon is for 3 year olds, the Priz Caravelle for 3 year old fillies and the Le Vase d'Argent for 4 year olds and upwards. The Derby du Languedoc is contested each June over 2400 metres for 3 year olds.
