Montpelier Hunt Races hosts seven races. The first race post time is 12:30 PM and the last race usually begins around 4:30PM. Two races are on the flat and five are over fences. The premier race is the sixth race and is run over Montpelier’s signature live brush fences. Most races are over 2 miles and the horses make over two turns around the course. Viewing is available right at the rail and is exhilarating beyond belief.
Watching the horses being saddled and walked in the paddock is also popular with spectators. A traditional presentation is made in the Winner’s Circle below the Race Tower for the winning horse, jockey and trainer.
