The 83d Radnor Hunt Races, featuring established and budding star horses in U.S. steeplechase racing, will be run Saturday on the grounds of the Radnor Hunt in Malvern.
Six races worth a total of $180,000 in prize money will be conducted over the W. Burling Cocks Memorial Racecourse, where a crowd of close to 20,000 is expected.
The two most lucrative races are the $50,000 National Hunt Cup at 23/8 miles over brush fences, and the $40,000 Radnor Hunt Cup at 3¼ miles over timber fences.
The racing is sanctioned by the National Steeplechase Association and is part of the racing circuit that ranges from Florida to New York and starts in the early spring and ends in the fall.
