85th Annual Radnor Hunt Races
The Radnor Hunt Races celebrated its 85th Anniversary on May 16th during the spring tradition of steeplechasing at the Radnor Hunt. Six exciting races featured horses vying for purses totaling $180,000. Guests dressed in fashionable derby party outfits, with many of the ladies wearing hats of elegance and style. They enjoyed tailgate picnics, buffet luncheons in the sponsored tents and just took in the fresh air while watching the races along the fence with friends and family. All proceeds from the Radnor Hunt Races benefit the land and water preservation programs of the Brandywine Conservancy in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. BNY Mellon celebrated 31 years as lead sponsor of the Radnor Hunt Races.
