Horse Racing Season is Here!

The horse racing season is here! May is the best time of year for those who enjoy Hunt and Steeplechase racing.

Three events are just around the corner.

Winterthur Point to PointThe Winterthur Point to Point is the first up on Sunday May 5. This is their 35th Anniversary and a great chance to celebrate both the great racing traditions and Cinco de Mayo. The gates open at 10:30 with racing beginning at 2:00. Be sure to enjoy the pony races and Parade of Antique Carriages before the races.

Willowdale SteeplechaseThe following weekend on Sunday May 12, The Willowdale Steeplechase will be held just outside Kennett Square. Continuing this Mother's Day tradition, the Jack Russell Terrier Races begin at 11:00 with the Pony Races following at 12:15. The post time for the first horse race is 1:30.

Radnor HuntFinally on Saturday May 18, the Radnor Hunt Races will be held. The grounds open at 9:00 and the races begin at 1:30. All proceeds benefit the Brandywine Conservancy.

Be sure to take some time this year to enjoy these classic local traditions. They are a great opportunity to enjoy the spring with your friends and family and support our local organizations.

The best fun ever! I hope you thoroughly enjoy it!  I love the races.  Of course we are really close to Santa anita so it really doesn't hurt.

Thank you - they're great events. I haven't been to Santa Anita since the 90s - I need to return!
