(Updated April 3, 2018)

We are pleased to present the schedule for 2018, our 15th season of operating international racing trips. We've also included some basic advance information on a trip planned for early 2019.

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.

We hope you will find one or more of our upcoming 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 in 2018.

MAY 28 to JUNE 4, 2018
8 days, 7 nights (including one en route)

Baden BadenWe return to Baden Baden, where we had such a great time on our first visit in 2016. While enjoying the restful old-world atmosphere of this famous spa town, we'll see the sport in a luxury lounge and front-row boxes at Germany's best racing venue. We'll get a good look at the increasingly influential German bloodstock industry by way of a farm visit and a sale. We'll cruise a river, have a mountain-top dinner, see Heidelberg, and offer an optional excursion to historic Strasbourg in France. And you'll have time to try your hand at one of the world's most beautiful casinos and "take the cure" in the traditional way.

6 nights in Baden Baden
2 days of racing at Iffezheim Racecourse
Farm visit and the mixed 2-year-old Breeze-Up and Horses-in-Training Sale
Heidelberg and Neckar River Excursion
An optional Excursion to Strasbourg

L'Etoile and the Arc de Triomphe, ParisThe greatest horse race in the world -- the Arc de Triomphe -- returns to the newly remodeled Longchamp Racecourse in Paris after a two-year hiatus. During the week we'll have additional racing at Longchamp and also at Saint-Cloud and Compiegne. Our longer stay in Chantilly this trip will allow us an extended visit to the major French training area and also more time for the other very worthwhile attractions in town. We'll attend the Arc-eve sale of horses-in-training, and include some other non-racing activities. You can take a day off from the track or extend in Paris to enjoy the city at the height of its best season.

3 nights in Paris, 3 nights in Chantilly
4 days of racing at Longchamp, Saint-Cloud, and Compiegne
Training area visit in Chantilly
The Arc-eve Sale of Horses in Training

Following on our successful and much-enjoyed trips to Australia, we journey south of the equator again for our first expedition to this place long known for its scenic beauty and its high-quality racehorse production. March is fall in New Zealand, and arguably the best time to visit. We're still making decisions on some of the trip details, but we'll be seeing major Group 1 racing at the country's two most important tracks in Auckland and Wellington and having a stay in the Waikato, home of most of New Zealand's major breeding farms. Also included will be a number of special non-racing activities.

Stays in Auckland, the Waikato Breeding Farm region, and Wellington
3 days of racing at Ellerslie, Trentham, and in the Waikato
Farm and Training Visits
