Mark your calendars! The Maryland Steeplechase Association’s Spring 2020 schedule is here. Spring racing season is just two months away, officially kicking off on Sunday, March 22 when the Foxhall Farm Cup Teamchase is run in Elkridge-Harford territory.

Make note of some important changes this year, including the new date for the Maryland Junior Hunt Cup. Traditionally run on the Sunday following the Maryland Hunt Cup, the Junior Hunt Cup will be run on the day prior to the Hunt Cup, Friday April 24 with a 3 pm post time. Additionally, the Fair Hill Point-to-Point is on a temporary hiatus this year as Fair Hill continues to undergo renovations. Don’t forget about our clinics, this year hosted on March 1 and March 8.
