Doug Fout won four races, including the Open Timber race at the Orange County Hounds Point-to-Point in Middleburg, Va., on April 1, and Neil Morris trained two winners, including the winner of the Open Hurdle.

Four Virginia Gents' Albus, trained by Fout and ridden by Kieran Norris, won the George E.

Albus went to the lead right from the start and led throughout the race, and Canyon Road rallied for second but couldn't catch the leader.
