‘Waregem Koerse’ fires the imagination of every horse lover or occasional visitor of this ‘horse feast’. During this unique happening, the Gaverbeek-hippodrome is turned into the Flemish Ascot for a few days. The catchy and exuberant character of Waregem Koerse also attracts inspired photographers. For several years already, Christian Lauer and Pascale Vandewalle try to picture the atmosphere and soul of this happening. A selection of their most beautiful pictures, reflecting the most exciting, amusing and moving moments, is now bundled into a de luxe edition of more than 350 pages. After a short history of Waregem Koerse, illustrated by archive photos, the book presents some 300 photographs and portraits, in chronological order of the festivities. The absolute highlight is of course the horserace on Tuesday with the ING Big Steeple Chase of Flanders.
Enjoy the horse feast, from Thursday to Tuesday!
