(Updated February 8, 2017)

We are pleased to present the schedule for 2017, our 14th season of operating international racing trips.

Note that the trip lengths as described include the latest departure date from the U.S., the arrival date at the destination, and the earliest return date to the U.S. In most cases, one of the nights will be spent en route overseas.

As always, the itineraries are designed for easy extension, either before or after the scheduled dates, for those who are wanting a longer stay abroad. The Ireland and England itineraries have built-in one-day options to extend, Ireland at the end of the trip, England at the beginning.

We hope you will find one or more of our 2017 trips appealing. Please donít hesitate to call or email us if you have any questions or if you would like to be listed to go on one. We look forward to hearing from you and to going racing with you this year.

Included will be morning training on The Curragh, a visit to one of the most successful private studs in the world, and some interesting sightseeing on our way to the races. We'll lodge in the brisk seaside air at Malahide, north of Dublin.

It's the final major event of the European season and the richest day of the year in the U.K. Amid the bracing weather and radiant fall color we'll also cast a wide net over the English racing scene with days at Windsor, Bath, and Brighton, and make time for non-racing exploration of all three places. We'll top things off with a training visit to the "Valley of the Racehorse" in Lambourn and a Thames River cruise. Come a day early for more racing at beautiful Goodwood.

7 nights in Windsor
4 days of racing at Ascot, Windsor, Bath, and Brighton
