(Updated November 14, 2018)

We’re pleased to present the schedule for 2019, our 16th 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.

We hope you will find one or more of our upcoming trips appealing. Please don’t 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 2019.

Racing in IrelandThe Irish Derby at the newly-remodeled Curragh Racecourse is the centerpiece of this mid-summer trip.

Also included will be an evening at one of Ireland's most atmosphere-rich smaller courses. We'll have a good look at The Curragh during training hours and visit several farms in this country that produces more high-quality bloodstock per capita than any other in the world. And we’ll throw in a sampling of some of Ireland’s most beautiful scenery.

Morning at DeauvilleDeauville is our favorite place to go racing in the world. It has everything – two racecourses, a seaside location, great dining, old-world elegance, and all of it within walking range of our hotel. And France’s best horse farms lie just inland. We’ll be there for some of the summer season’s finest racing and an important part of our week will be a full-day excursion to the D-Day landing beaches. We'll look in on Honfleur too. Deauville combines the best of Saratoga, Del Mar, and Kentucky – and then adds just that bit more.
