(Updated November 20, 2019)

We’re pleased to present the schedule for 2020, our 17th season of operating racing trips. We're offering a trip to Yorkshire in the north of England, and for the first time ever, a domestic U.S.A. trip featuring Kentucky Downs which will base out of the vibrant city of Nashville, Tennessee.

Note that the trip length as described for the overseas trip includes the latest departure date from the U.S., the arrival date at the destination, and the earliest return date to the U.S. 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.

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 2020.

MAY 6 to MAY 14 or 15, 2020
9 or 10 days, 8 or 9 nights (including one en route)

Racing at YorkYorkshire offers us a completely new menu of racecourses -- steeped in tradition, abundant in atmosphere, and full of high quality racing. We'll lodge in the historic city of York and have plenty of time to explore its many attractions. Racing will feature important preps for the English Derby and Oaks, and we'll visit the yards of one of England's major trainers in the unique environs of Middleham. Several non-racing activities outside of York, including dinner in a private home, will also be part of the program. Please note the early Closing Date.

7 or 8 nights in York
4 or 5 days/evenings of racing at York, Ripon, Thirsk, and Wetherby
Additional optional racing at Catterick and Beverley

6 Days, 5 Nights

Off at Kentucky DownsOur first-ever inside the U.S.A. trip will highlight European-style racing at the one-of-a-kind-in-America Kentucky Downs. The all-grass course goes right, left, up, and down, just like they do overseas. And they run for big money: purses in 2019 totaled more than $11.5 million for five days of racing and their first million-dollar event, the mile-and-a-half Kentucky Turf Cup, was staged. The word is increasingly out and the caliber of racing grows dramatically every year. We'll headquarter in nearby Nashville, a city full of racing and other history and one of the great music capitals of the world. We'll sample plenty of both.

5 nights in Nashville
2 days of racing at Kentucky Downs
