Avontuur fillies at Kenilworth

The Peninsula Room on the 4th floor, to which our “VIP” invitation directed us
Some very tender beef in the 3rd floor canteen, the media venue
“And they are off...! down the straight to the winning post
This was a very close finish
Ferraris on show – horses with power
The balcony for watching the races
The winner enters the Circle
A familiar face in the crowd - Oscar Foulkes
How to watch the race and dine in comfort. The Pavilion room was, it appeared, for members and real VIP guests only, not the media
Flags at half mast. Winner and places on the board
One Ferrari had been infested by a swarm of bees which had to be carefully removed by a beekeeper
In the Pavilion room you watch as you eat and drink and never have to move except to place your bets and claim your winnings, if any.
