This poster advertises a horse race at the Chantilly racetrack (run by France Galop), set for June 7, 2009. FRANCE GALOP, the governing body of French horse racing, was created on 3rd May 1995 when three horseracing associations, the Société d'Encouragement et des Steeple-Chases de France, the Société de Sport de France and the Société Sportive d'Encouragement, were merged. Its role centres on promoting the improvement of the racehorse breed. By means of this role, France Galop helps to fund and coordinate a vibrant sector employing over 73,250 people (directly and indirectly), operating throughout the regions of France.

The Prix du Jockey Club was born at the inception of horse racing in France, quickly creating a name for itself as a arena for competing pure-breeds. A large number of well-known horse jockeys have participated in this French race since it was established in 1836.
Created for Prix du Jockey-Club's summer 2009 horse race, this original poster was recently linen-backed and is in great condition. The perfect gift for any horse-lover!
