    Maxilon<br>There is an A/W track – it’s at Deauville and is relatively recent. Its main use seems to be during July and August when all the Paris tracks close and everything moves to Normandy. That means that if the weather is wet the track at Deauville cuts up badly under all the racing that goes on there, hence, I assume, the desire for the A/W. There is the Clairefontaine turf track close to Deauville but that’s a bit "infra-dig" for the hoi-polloi of Paris-sur-Mer. There are a couple of meetings on the A/W during the winter but it doesn’t seem to have caught on. Bear in mind that the turf season here goes on into early December and starts again in early March so the break is a good bit shorter than in the UK (especially if you factor in the February meetings at Cagnes-sur-Mer down on the Med). <br>I suspect that the leading stables don’t see it as a significant asset; France is a very conservative country so it’ll likely be several years before A/W takes off, if at all. <br>LL
