The Hunt- Far Hills, NJ

According to
"More than 40,000 spectators, including many from Hunterdon County, are expected to gather for the 92nd annual Far Hills Race Meeting on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Moorland Farms, 50 Route 202 in Far Hills. The historic event – one of the country’s most prestigious steeplechase horse races –will feature top thoroughbred jump racing, individualized tailgating parties and culinary feasts set against the stunning backdrop of New Jersey’s fall foliage.

The Far Hills Race Meeting traces its origins to the Essex Hunt, a fox hunting event founded in 1870, and since the 1950s has raised more than $18 million to benefit Somerset Medical Center in Somerville.
Tickets range from $60 for advance general admission to $750 for the Chairman’s Tent, including food and beverage services. Options for race-goers include reserved parking spaces for tailgating, a family tailgate area, and a Vendor Village featuring fashion and accessories from exclusive boutiques. Reserved parking spaces for tailgating are also available. Proceeds from the event will benefit the programs and services of Somerset Medical Center."

Here was my girl and her friends:
