The Birdcage

The Birdcage

Yesterday was another midweek race day at the Avondale Jockey Club. I had the good fortune to be invited up to the President’s Lounge by a committee member (thank you Vince!), where one gets a splendid bird’s eye view of proceedings, both front and back – here the ‘birdcage’. Most of the jockeys are in the saddle, and in a moment they will be guided onto the track.
