ARMCHAIR PARIS


 

Chantilly
May 2, 2007


May 2, 2007 -- 
Our afternoon at Chantilly was sunny and warm. This lovely city, an hour's train ride north of Paris, houses not only an historic race track but also the Chateau de Chantilly and le Muse Vivant du Cheval, both of which are marvels and worth visiting.  Unfortunately we didn't have time this round to do either, because we were at the races!
 


The track is set in front of the Museum of the Horse...

 

 

 


Gina arranges for a rider for her race this weekend at Fontainebleau...
 


Jean-Paul Gallorini, one of France's leading trainers, lives and works in Maisons-Laffitte


Nickelle gets ready to hit the track, ridden by Thomas, owned by the Wildensteins, trained by Jean-Paul...
and came in a respectable third!
 



And down the stretch they come...
