Baltimore County has been home to world-class timber racing since the inaugural running of the Maryland Hunt Cup in 1894. Since then, horsemen and revelers have descended upon the rolling hills and estates of the County’s renowned horse country.

Visitors can see five steeplechase races during the month of April, including the running of:

  • April 15—My Lady’s Manor Steeplechase
  • April 22—The Maryland Grand National
  • April 29—Maryland Hunt Cup

These demanding races last for several miles with over 18 large split-board fence jumps—a true test of speed, stamina and skill. Come for the racing, stay for the awesome tailgating!
