Suporting Group Races on Saturday 02 October 2010. There will be 4 excellent Group 2 races run on Saturday together with a listed race and our own PRIX HORSE RACING ABROAD. HORSE RACING ABROAD & LONGCHAMP Horse Racing Abroad has worked closely with France Galop, the French Jockey Club, for many years and is proud to be the only, officially appointed, racing tour company to bring race- goers to this event. With two days of superb Group racing, Longchamp will have its busiest weekend of the year with crowds pouring in from all over France, Europe and America. Besides creating a tremendous atmosphere of excitement and anticipation, this can also lead to overcrowding throughout the racecourse, the only exception being the exclusive Horse Racing Abroad Pavilion Grandstand area. Your tour price includes entry to Longchamp Racecourse, with access to the public areas such as the main grandstands ( without reserved seating), but it does not include entry to the Horse Racing Abroad Pavilion Grandstand, which is for the exclusive use of those clients who have purchased Pavilion Badges in advance. Our aim at Horse Racing Abroad is to ensure that you enjoy your visit to the full. With a reserved seat in our exclusive grandstand you can watch the racing in comfort and avoid the crowds in the public areas. We hope that you will join us for the 2010 Qatar Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe Weekend.
12 | Providing Specialist Horse Racing Holidays With a Commitment to Excellence QATAR PRIX DE L'ARC DE TRIOMPHE Longchamp 03 OCTOBER 2010 THE HORSE RACING ABROAD PAVILION GRANDSTAND Our Exclusive Facilities at Longchamp Since 1981 we have had the unique facility of our own private Grandstand at Longchamp. The Pavilion, which dates from 1927, is a listed building. 2001 saw the start of our major renovation programme to the Pavilion Grandstand that has resulted in improvements to the facilities on the ground floor and to the luncheon rooms on the first floor. The Pavilion is for the exclusive use of our clientele and, as a result, there are minimal queues for betting, eating and drinking in comparison to the rest of Longchamp. The Pavilion also prides itself on having spacious viewing areas from which to watch the races. The Pavilion is now " the place to be" at Longchamp as far as the British turfists are concerned! Many famous faces of the British Racing fraternity are to be seen enjoying a casual lunch in the self- service restaurant or a celebratory drink at the bar! To assist our clients in the Pavilion area, France Galop arrange English race commentaries on both Saturday and Sunday. Horse Racing Abroad Pavilion Badges £ 75.00 each, valid both days! This badge will give you access to all areas of the Horse Racing Abroad Pavilion including a covered, reserved Grandstand seat, a racing paper and a racecourse programme on both Saturday and Sunday. Arc day is a very special day in the racing calendar and gentlemen are respectfully requested to wear jacket and tie for admission into the Pavilion area. Remember!
