This year the BRANDYWINE HILLS POINT-TO-POINT will continue its long history within horse-racing in the Delaware Valley community on Sunday, April 1st.
Originating in 1939, the idea was born at a dinner party as guests questioned the merit and superiority of their own foxhunters.
Shortly thereafter, the race was created to settle the dispute. Seventy-six years later, the race is still going strong, and has developed into a community event.
Through the years, divisions have been added including those for ladies, heavyweights, and ponies ridden by junior jockeys, attracting horses from as far as Maryland and Virginia.
In 1987, a new course was built on the grounds of the Brandywine Valley Association, now known as the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance.
All proceeds from the race will benefit their programs.
This year the program will include many Easter activities, thrilling steeplechase racing, and tailgating.
Gates open at 10:00am.
