Headed towards victory at Hippodrome de Longchamp, Paris.
A view of part of the course, pre-race.
I live across the street and walk or bike around the exterior of Longchamp nearly every day.
Another view of the course with the lucky horseshoe finish line. If you look closely, you'll notice the Eiffel Tower peeking out above the trees of the Bois du Boulogne.
The pre-race parade rink and winner's circle.
Before the race...
The winner's circle.
Anticipation: Jockeys wait for their mounts.

Amazing images. You either have a terrific long lens or GREAT seats and access!

These wonderful photos brought back a lot of memories when we lived just 30 minutes from Saratoga. Racing, summer home to the Met Opera and Ballet. Those were the days. :>)

Gorgeous photos, Tara! I'm a "horse person" - it runs in the family - and those photos of the racehorse and his jockey make my heart sing.

I know it's wrong of me...but the next question is...what kind of purse do you carry?? That's all I know of Longchamps...sad, isn't it?

I love horses, love, love them. Beautiful pictures Tara. You are talented at everything you do. I could park myself here! I think me and Gillian are going to park ourselves permanently on your blog.

Oh green grass! How beautiful. I can't wait! How exciting to drop in there and catch the race, you lucky woman you.
As for the Obama clip, the more I hear from him, the more I really like him. He makes sense.
Enjoy your weekend mon ami, may it be great!
