Arrive in Paris and make your way to our four-star hotel (exact hotel TBC). Our hotel’s location facilitates discovery of Paris’s luminous attractions; we’re a short walk from the Champs Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe.

We’ll then meet up t the bar to enjoy a few drinks before we head out and enjoy a nice welcome dinner at a local French restaurant to get to know everyone and hear our plans for the week.


After a morning of leisure, we’ll be taken on a half-day guided tour of beautiful Paris, taking in all the key sites including the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre and more.

The evening is then yours at leisure to enjoy some fabulous restaurants and the amazing Paris nightlife.


Today we’re off to the heart of French racing in Chantilly where we’ll take in the stunning surrounds, visit a local stable, check out the amazing gallops and forest sand tracks, drop by the racecourse, enjoy a tour of the famous palace and indulge in a tasty country luncheon. The surroundings for training at Chantilly are amazing and a day you soon won’t forget.

Today is a day of leisure for you to explore more of Paris, do some shopping, visit some more famous museums or just wander the streets and soak up the city of love. There is also the option to attend the races at Saint-Cloud (30 minutes away), a casual Friday afternoon race meeting.

We’ll meet for a nice evening dinner cruise along the beautiful Seine River to take in all the views, including the lit-up Eiffel Tower, and prepare for a great weekend of racing ahead.

This is a day to explore the course, visit the parade ring, hit the gift shop and see the horses up close.

After the races, we’ll head back to the hotel for evening drinks with Frankie Dettori and a few other special racing guests; they’ll talk us through their rides at Longchamp and hopefully tip us into a winner or two.
