After World War II, the first races took place in 1952.

Brighter moments

One of the brighter moments in the history of the Partynice track was in 1969, when, in place of Czech Praga, the capital of Lower Silesia hosted participants of the annual meeting with English blood horses from Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Poland, Hungary and the USSR. Partynice witnessed the huge success of Polish horses, which in terms of the amount of prizes won took second place behind Hungarian steeds, beating the rarely losing team of the Soviet Union.
