A Day at the Races

Today we were lucky enough to be guests of friends who belong to the Royal Ascot Racing Club. When you leave the club room with it's squashy sofas and unending streams of canapes, lunch, afternoon tea and constant champagne and go across to view the racecourse, this is the balcony view, right above the finish line:
These bronze statues are in the old paddock, now the pre-parade ring:

We went into the paddock with their runner, which finished a close second in a very hot race. It holds an entry in the Derby, which it's sire won for the Racing Club and everyone went home with plenty to dream about over the winter...


  1. Jealous! Always wanted to go to Ascot! Sounds like a marvellous time! I love those statues! Fabulous!

  2. Your day out sounds fantastic. I love those statues!!
