Join us for a day of premier steeplechase racing at the Potomac Hunt Races. 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, The RBC 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.

There are three ways to access the races – Railside Parking, Premium Unreserved Parking Passes and Shuttle Passes. The Potomac Hunt Races also offers sponsorship tents (link) for companies wishing to entertain clients and/or employees.

Railside and Premium Unreserved tend to sell out and must be purchased in advance.

Offsite shuttle service is available for $10 cash per person over five. Five and under are free. Shuttle Transfer Passes can be purchased in advance or on race day at each parking lot. Shuttles run 9:45 AM – 6 PM, every 15 minutes.

See the passes page for more details.

The Races are made possible by the generosity of the Kiplinger family.
