2 HELP THE UNICORN MISS AZALÉE CLAIR

A fantastic and fun treasure hunt was in store at every Dimanches au Galop event in 2018!

MISS AZALÉE CLAIR IS BACK!


This famous unicorn, who dreams of becoming a star of the racecourse, is back and better than ever!
But a CATASTROPHE has recently struck her magical mane:  Miss Azalée Clair has fallen in love!

When unicorns fall in love, they lose sight of everything else!

This is not good news for Miss Azalée Clair, who has forgotten almost everything she’s learnt…and now she must sit her Racing Unicorn Exams! She has to get all of the questions right if she is to be in with a chance of getting her license…

Equipped with a booklet containing fun racing-themed games, our young racegoers are invited to help Miss Azalée Clair complete her revision notes and fulfil her dream of becoming a racing unicorn!

...and they might just find out who her secret love is with while they’re at it!

So, what are you waiting for? Miss Azalée Clair needs your help!


At the end of the 45 to 50-minute trail, players were invited back to the start to have their certificates stamped and collect their prize.
