This weekend, the 41st Annual Point to Point is being run at Winterthur in Greenville DE. It will be the place to be on Sunday May 5. With tailgating, children activities, and fantastic racing, it is a great way to relax and spend time with your friends and family. Gates open at 10:30 with racing starting at 2:00. Before the races, the Alison Hershbell Pony Races start at noon and the George A "Frolic" Weymouth Parade of Antique Carriages begins at 1:00.

 

On May 12, the Willowdale Steeplechase will be run just outside Kennett Square. The event helps to raise money for The Stroud Water Resource Center, the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine's New Bolton Center, and Quest Therapeutic Services. The day begins at 10:00 with the opening welcome and Jack Russel Terrier Races at 10:30. Pony Races start a 11:30. Horse racing starts at 1:00 and races run throughout the afternoon.
