A horseracing tradition for almost a century, this annual steeplechase event takes place during the third weekend in April at the Glenwood Park Racecourse. First held in 1911, the event is now comprised of six different races, including the Temple Gwathmey hurdle contest, which draws some of the best competitors in the nation. Designed by renowned horse trainer Paul Fout and local architect Tommy Beach, the track itself includes New Zealand—style steeplechase fences, as well as huge logs, water features, and yew fences. A number of private boxes and tents are available for rent.
