NEW THIS YEAR — ALL ONSITE PARKING MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE. Premium Parking is available for purchase online only and is limited.

Shuttle Transfer Passes can be purchased in advance or on race day at each parking lot.

Held in the heart of Montgomery County's horse country, the Potomac Hunt Races is an annual tradition, celebrating the sport of steeplechase racing. Amidst the thrill of thundering hooves and soaring horses, race day festivities include a car display, mounted police demonstrations, a Kid Zone, and Vendor Village. 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.

For optimum tailgating, railside parking passes must be purchased in advance. The Potomac Hunt also offers sponsorship tents for companies wishing to entertain clients and/or employees.

Once you're here, sit back, relax, and enjoy the adrenalin rush of the racing horses!
