FAIR HILL, Md. — The Fair Hill Thoroughbred Show (FHTHS) (www.fairhillthoroughbredshow) enjoyed another successful year, with competitors, many from as far away as Richmond, Va. 

More than $20,000 was awarded to beneficiaries, more than $2,000 in scholarships were awarded to individuals, and 15 competitors were selected at random to participate in a clinic given by Ann Kursinski, five time Olympian with two team silver medals.

“The Fair Hill Thoroughbred Show was founded to encourage the re-homing and retraining of off-the-track thoroughbreds. The prize money is meant to reward the people who are dedicated to the welfare of these wonderful horses,” said Lisa Demars, President of the FHTHS.
