We are thrilled that you will be joining us for a fine day of horse racing, amazing short rib chili, drinks, and friendly wagering!
Here are all the things you need to know on your way to Spot # 50:
Date: Saturday, October 18. Gates open at 9:30. Try to arrive by 10 or 10:30 and races are over around 3:00.
We supply the home base and all the creature comforts but we ask that you just buy your own admission tickets. “The Hunt” is a fundraiser for the Somerset Medical Center so tickets are tax deductible. They are available at lots of locations around New Jersey (don’t wait till the last minute as they do run out).
Another reason to BUY IN ADVANCE: Buying at the gate on the day of the race is double (yikes!).
Here is the link for finding a ticket location. You can also purchase online, but a bit pricier with the UPS service.
New Rules by the Far Hills Race Event Committee this year!!! No one may bring in alcohol!!! Drinks may ONLY be brought in by the space holder (us) or approved caterers when setting up. So, don’t bring a bottle of wine or you will be donating it to the ticket checker on your way through the gate.
We will bring a frosty keg of beer plus red and white wine. If you want something special, please let us know in advance and we’ll get it in the van.
Directions to The Hunt
The "insider" directions below will keep you out of the fray. With most attendees using route 202 to get to the grounds, we come in the back way that also drops you directly in front of several large parking fields. If you arrive between 10-11, you should be able to easily get a spot. (All event parking that day is $30)
Directions to Spot #50
Our spot is located up on the crest of the hill overlooking the entire site and track. You should easily be able to identify the hill on the one side of the track (the other side is flat). We are at the top left if you were looking at the hill from the center of the track.
