Katherine Ford: My favourite French racecourses

1. Auteuil

This is where it all started for me, as it was the first place I worked in France, when I was with the International Racing Bureau. As a twenty-something-year-old, finding myself there with a job was a dream come true, and it's still a special place for me. The Grand Steeplechase de Paris is a great trip for British tourists, and I don't think people realise that Auteuil is just off the Péripherique, so you watch the race with a view of the Eiffel Tower in the background.
