This fabulous trip begins with an airfare voucher with a value of up to $1,800 and includes a four-night stay for two at the charming four-star Hotel Terass in the heart of the Montmartre district in Paris, France.

Finish this wonderful trip with entrance to the great Prix d’Amerique Race.

Last year’s winner, Linda Toscano, this year’s trainer of Chapter Seven, and Market Share said, “It is a must 'go-to' trip!”
