Fernand Maréchal (Jean Gabin) escapes from the police by taking the place of a jockey. Jean Gabin was known for his love of the land and animals, horses in particular, even though he was scared to death of them. He owned about fifteen and even built the Moulins-la-Marche racetrack in the Orne department (61). It’s still in activity and has been renamed after the actor. It was used as the setting in 1989 for Ripoux contre Ripoux. As forthe Paris-Vincennes racetrack, inaugurated in 1863, it not only hosts horse races but also movie shootings and concerts such as Pink Floyd and even U2.
