2019 RRC

The 2019 Real Rider Cup, held for the first time in Fair Hill, Maryland, was a massive success. Twenty-five riders represented five teams and raised over $55,000 for our beneficiaries: Retired Racehorse Project, New Vocations and our hosts, Fair Hill Thoroughbred Show.

A large and enthusiastic crowd enjoyed a stunning late summer afternoon watching Clovis Crane (riding bareback!) capture the individual title aboard his Empire Road, with the Team Competition going to Team Farm & Racing Managers. Click here for video

We’re already planning Real Rider Cup 2020…..be sure to join us!
