Nothing goes together like a horse and carriage.

OFF AND RUNNING
The fall steeplechase circuit – kicked off by the running of the Blue Ridge races at Merry Carol and Herb Jonkers’ Woodley Farm in Berryville – is going full tilt. Diana Gillam, on Marino Feliz, won the Martha Robinson Byrd Cook Memorial open hurdle race for owner Gary Baker. Susie and Wayne Chatfield Taylor parked their purple-and-green camper in just the right spot to enjoy Chip Embury’s magnificent tailgating. The festivities were off and running, with Tom Hulfish’s Bad Dog Press capturing the timber race for rider Woods Winants.
