Sometimes, it seems like the world is shrinking, and the destinations you thought the most exotic are now just a hop, skip and a jump away. That was certainly the case for Emma Berry, who hopped on a flight to Zurich, then onto a train to St. Moritz and found herself on a racetrack in the middle of a frozen lake—if dressed a little too practically to fit in with the locals. For most of us, New Zealand is a bit further, but Susan Archer gives us tips on how to navigate the Karaka Sales and the North Island like a pro. And speaking of the Southern Hemisphere, Jocelyn Targett is just back from the Mel- bourne Cup, where a teaser-stallion-sired runner gave his ownership group the thrill of a lifetime. On the sub- ject of thrills, Charlotte Weber has some herself lately, capped off with a Breeders' Cup win. Michael Adolph- son talks to her about a life spent in Ocala, and in rac- ing. But the best news of all this month is the return of our very own Chris McGrath, who has just returned to the TDN with his third Journalist of the Year award in hand. He sits Frankie Dettori down for a memorable, and entertaining Last Word. Welcome back, Chris!

By Chris McGrath 46 NEW ZEALAND'S NATURAL BEAUTY With a population of around 4.5 million people, New Zealand doesn't crack the world's top 100 countries in terms of the number of people who live there. But for racing people and in terms of natural beauty, it's right up near the top of anyone's list. By Susan Archer TDN WEEKEND w w w . P M a d ve r t i s i n g . c o m
