    Hi Floise,
    Thank you but the backstretch cannot be "la dernière ligne droite" (that's what the "homestretch" is.)
    The backstrecth is an area where horses are stables and trained.
    see: Backstretch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It contains the "paddock" and "stables."
    I'm not sure there is a word with the same semantic field in French...
