Claudie Macaigne grew up in Chantilly where she developed a passion for horses. Trained as a statistician she worked for major companies as market researcher for years before coming back to her first love at La Teste racecourse in the South-West of France. There she created the position of communication manager and has helped developing this dynamic Société des Courses. She discovered the world of Arabian purebreds and its main actors, breeders, owners, trainers or sponsors. More than anything she admires this animal of rare beauty and keen intelligence.
Now a breeder of race horses she remains active within the Société des Courses helping defining its broad policy as a member of the board.
