Charity begins at home (and a good time is had by all) at the Far Hills Race Meeting to benefit Somerset Medical Center, returning to Moorland Farms on Saturday, October 23, 2010.  Rex, London, Maddie and I are fair weather steeplechase fans, so our family has enjoyed the Hunt twice in the past three years:

  • in October 2007, when the sun was shining, the horses were running, the beer was flowing, the kids were playing in the mud; and
  • in October 2008, when the weathergirl delivered more clouds than sun, with highs in the upper 50s. We wore our layers, and everyone was plenty warm in the afternoon sun.

More than 50,000 spectators converge each Fall on the rolling hills of Moorland Farms in Far Hills, New Jersey, for the Garden State’s biggest social event of the season — The Far Hills Race Meeting. This year’s race — on Saturday, October 23, 2010 — will mark the 90th running, and the Far Hills Race features some of the finest steeplechasers in the world competing against a backdrop of autumn splendor in the Somerset Hills (and the Greater Roxiticus Valley).  I’ve already wangled another invitation from our good friends with the perfect parking spot
