The Curragh on Irish Derby Day

On the training grounds, trainers in the right-hand seat of their cars discuss the morning works on their way back to their stables.

People, cars, bus and horses, all proceed together.

The racetrack before the crowds arrived for Derby Day.

Helicopters brought patrons to the races all day long.

The Derby post parade.

The parade of the winner down the track prior to entering the winner's circle.

The very old peat moss gallops are about 15 feet wide with very dark, spongy soil beneath. The entire Curragh complex covers about 50,000 acres.

Bookies at their stands, under the umbrellas.

And, finally, the presentation of the trophy.

To the final day of the tour.
