French racing pools are now available exclusively to British and Irish racing fans through a new agreement between the UK Tote Group and France's PMU.

Beginning on Thursday, Sept. 28, this agreement is the only way British and Irish pool betting customers can access French pools. The Tote is commingling into French pools for all French races, including the G1 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on Sunday. Tote customers will be able to bet into over 7,000 pools and view live racing from 88 French racecourses each year, including 262 Pattern contests and leading trotting fixtures via, and iOS and Android Tote Apps. The PMU typically offers pools of over €750,000 on each race, or nearly €6 million per meeting, with over €15,000,000 bet into pools on the Prix de l'Arc De Triomphe last year.

Initially, the Tote will offer a placepot on the weekend's racing from Longchamp, along with the six most popular single leg pools, with the aim of introducing more bet types in due course. For more information, please go to the UK Tote Group website.

Alex Frost, chief executive of the UK Tote Group, said, “We are delighted to work with the PMU on this incredibly positive development for UK and Irish racing fans, which will also drive increased revenues for the grassroots of French racing. By commingling our UK pool into the French pool, British and Irish Tote customers can bet into huge pools on the top class racing action from France. I would like to thank the PMU team for their cooperation and support, and we wish everyone a successful weekend ahead of two fantastic days of racing at Longchamp.”

Emmanuelle Malecaze-Doublet, chief executive officer of the PMU said, “This agreement is a strategic milestone in our long-standing partnership with UK Tote Group. We are very proud of this new step that marks the recognition of our expertise as a global horse racing operator and highlights the excellence of French races.”
