Keeping an eye on international bloodlines as the French racing kicks off again this week in Europe, Damon was pleased to see the training facilities of Chantilly in France on show as Arqana’s Alix Choppin provides a tour for the European Thoroughbred Daily News.

As the Australian and New Zealand representative for auction house Arqana, Belmont Bloodstock continues to promote the significant influence imported mares and racing stock continue to make on the thoroughbred breeding scene – and it is at Chantilly that a large majority of the French stock begin their careers.

The French capital for the horse, Chantilly offers a unique and diverse range of training facilities and stables as old as the 16th Century. We hope you enjoy the feature piece with host Alix Choppin.
