Nice Weather Forecast for This Weekend's Far Hills Race Meeting October 18, 2008, to Benefit Somerset Medical Center

I was on the phone earlier today with my favorite butcher, Mario Perrotti at M&M Perrotti's over in Far Hills, NJ, and he reminded me that (1) his Friday and Saturday are going to be absolutely crazy getting ready for the Far Hills Race Meeting to benefit Somerset Medical Center and (2) I've got to get out and buy our tickets!

I've only been to "the Hunt" once... in October 2007, when the sun was shining, the horses were running, the beer was flowing, the kids were playing in the mud, and I'll hope the weather repeats this year on Saturday, October 18th. The weekend weather for Far Hills, New Jersey, promises more clouds than sun, with highs in the upper 50s. I guess I'd better get that sweater out....or maybe a rugby shirt.

More than 50,000 spectators converge each Fall on the rolling hills of Moorland Farms in Far Hills, New Jersey, for the Garden State's biggest social event of the season -- The Far Hills Race Meeting. This year's race -- on Saturday, October 18, 2008 -- will mark the 88th running, and the Far Hills Race features some of the finest steeplechasers in the world competing against a backdrop of autumn splendor in the Somerset Hills (and the Greater Roxiticus Valley). I sure hope I can wangle an invitation from our good friends with the perfect parking spot.

Tickets are now on sale online (ONLY in bundles of 10 general admission tickets for $500) and in many local stores.
