Steeplechase @ Oak Ridge
Above, the horses and riders in the 4th Annual Steeplechase at Oak Ridge. The event was presented by Jubilee Family Center of Lynchburg, Virginia.
The weather was beautiful the turnout great and NCL’s, Hayley Osborne, was there! She caught a couple of shots to set the scene. You simply have to love this time of year in the Blue Ridge. The 4th annual event consisted of top riders, top horses, trainers, and owners.
Above spectators cheer! Mmmm, that person in the sunglasses looks just like a familiar singer from these parts!
The original track was built in 1900 by Thomas Fortune Ryan and expanded in the early 1990’s. This year’s six races featured selected races sanctioned by the
National Steeplechase Association. A great afternoon for everyone!
