Fair Hill Races – Saturday, May 24, 2014
Join us in celebrating the 80th anniversary of this magnificent Cecil County tradition! Since 1934, Fair Hill Races has attracted horsemen, families, and bettors to the 5,600 acre former estate of the late William duPont, Jr. Drawing over 12,000 spectators, the Races is the largest annual single-day event held in Cecil County.
The only Steeplechase race in the country to offer para mutuel betting, the Races also provide a range of fun activities for the entire family including Stick Pony races for the kids, a live band, dozens of merchants in Vendor Village, and a variety of delicious foods for sale from crab cakes to pulled pork!
The Fair Hill Races benefit Union Hospital. The Cecil County Breeders’ Fair Board and Union Hospital Foundation work in partnership to hold this wonderful event for the community each year. We hope to see you at the Races!
