24 IN FRANCE, A REVOLUTION After years of fairly moribund activity, the stallion ranks in France are getting hotter by the day. By Chris McGrath Several months into a long, grey winter, it's hard to imagine that somewhere, people are sitting on a warm beach. In this month's TDN Weekend, you'll be inspired to do just that. It's February, and for those of who grew up in the Northeast (and grew tired of the cold-weather racing at Aqueduct or Lau- rel) that means one thing: it's time for a visit to Gulfstream. Whether you're planning a trip for the big three-year-old rac- es, or the Gulfstream Sale March 1, it's time to read up on what to see and where to be seen in South Beach. Further south still, we'll catch up with Teo Ah Khing, who is planning a racing paradise in St. Lucia. Graham Motion has also head- ed to Miami for winter racing, and he'll have this month's Last Word. Chris McGrath reminds us that winter in England doesn't mean sunbathing: it means steeplechasing, and there's no better place to do it than Cheltenham. And finally, before you get ready to breed your mare in Europe this year, take heed: there's a revolution happening in France.
