Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

It’s a brisk Saturday, October 18th, and Rex, London, Maddie and I are off to the races! More than 50,000 fans are expected to converge for the 88th running of the Far Hills Races at Moorland Farms in Far Hills, NJ. We’re going to head over to the train station in Gladstone, where shuttle buses will take us back and forth to Moorland Farms for the steeplechase.

Post time is 1:00pm, but the people with the best parking spaces have already arrived and are eagerly awaiting the delivery of their catered treats.

A centerpiece of the National Steeplechase Association season, the Far Hills Race Meeting offers six races with purses totaling $550,000, making it the most lucrative steeplechase meeting in the United States.

Last year, I only had my iPhone for picture taking, but this year, I’m bringing my Canon Digital Rebel and will try to give all of my readers a feel for the races and the tailgating crowd.
