The beginning of the spring race season brought fine competition and eager participants.  The Warrenton Point to Point races were held on March 17th at the Airlie Racecourse, followed the next day by the Piedmont Fox Hounds Point to Point at the Salem Racecourse.

If you missed them this time, be sure to gather your tailgate supplies and head out to the next events coming up. ML
