It was an overcast, dreary day for this year’s Montpelier Hunt Races held at the home of James and Dolley Madison in Montpelier Station, Va, but the racing was good. The horses race past the mansion and some try to jump the mulch covered road.
They held the dirt race for the first time in a few years. Pride of the Fleet won.
Those farther back in the field had a face full of dirt.
There were some very handsome horses in the paddock. Decoy Daddy won the Noel Laing Stakes race for an unprecedented third time.
