The Maryland Hunt Cup, April 30, 2016. This world renowned timber race has been a Maryland tradition—a rite of spring— for over 100 years: one race, precisely at 4:00 pm, sumptuous tailgates, fancy clothes, held in the rolling hills of the Worthington Valley, with close up views of the nation’s top thoroughbred steeplechase horses. Revered for generations, we can depend that this event at least never changes.
