The 29th running of the Willowdale Steeplechase will be held

Saturday, May 14th, 2022.

We were so happy to welcome our Private Party Paddock guests, our sponsors, our volunteers and, of course, our horses and horsemen to a fantastic day of racing on May 8th. With all of your help, we enjoyed a lovely day outside (it only rained for 15 minutes, and the sun came out after!) and raised money for our beneficiaries, Stroud Water Research Center and Penn Vet New Bolton Center.
Please Save the Date for the 29th running of the Willowdale Steeplechase: Saturday May 14, 2022. It is our sincere hope that our patron parking and ticketing will be back “normal” and we will be able to welcome ALL our fans! Thank you so much for your patience this year as we navigated challenging conditions and worked hard to keep everyone safe.
