FAR HILLS, NJ - The finest steeplechasers in the world will compete in the 93rd running of the Far Hills Race Meeting on Oct. 19 at Moorland Farm.
Total race day purses will equal $550,000, with six races offering the highest purses on the National Steeplechase Association circuit.
With crowds on a nice day approaching 50,000 spectators, it is considered by many to be the state’s biggest social event of the fall season. This world-class event brings families, race enthusiasts, organizations and corporations together for a day of racing, high fashion, food, networking and celebration.
The Far Hills Race Meeting has a long history as a family-friendly event and benefits the Somerset Medical Center Foundation. Borough officials say they hope this year's policy changes with new restrictions on alcohol, behavior and admissions will prevent increases in underage drinking and disruptive behavior seen in recent years.For more information go to : http://thealternativepress.com/articles/new-policies-for-far-hills-race-meeting
