The Potomac Hunt Races is an annual steeplechase race – great for anyone who enjoys tailgating, horses and mingling with family and friends. In addition to racing horses, race day festivities include a car display, mounted police demonstrations, The RBC Kid Zone, and Vendor Village.
For optimum tailgating, rail side or premium parking passes must be purchased in advance by May 12th. The Potomac Hunt Races also offers sponsorship tents for companies wishing to entertain clients and/or employees.
On the day of the races, parking is available at Poolesville and Quince Orchard high schools with shuttle service to the racecourse. Shuttle passes are $10/person cash, and children under five are free. Shuttles run in 15-20 minute increments starting at 9:45am and the last shuttle leaves the racecourse at 6pm.
All kid events, including a stick horse race on the actual racecourse, are free so pack your family and head to the races.
Enjoy the camaraderie of friends and colleagues, the beauty of nature, and the majesty of the equine athletes — all within the pristine rolling fields of the Kiplinger estate in Poolesville, Maryland.
