[1] Charity begins at home (and a good time is had by all) at the [2] 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.

[3] 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
