Chinon jockey wins his weight in wine

Chinon’s horsetrack wrapped up its racing year on August 15 in a style befitting the world-renowned wine center.

The traditional race bearing the name of the local wine federation rewarded the winning jockey with his weight in cases of the best Chinon wines.

A red-robed muckety-muck of the Confrérie des Entonneurs officiated at the weighing.
