Race Information

Montpelier Hunt Races always hosts seven races. The first race post time is 12:30 PM and the last race usually begins between 4:30 and 4:45PM. Two races are on the flat and 5 are over fences.The premier race is the sixth race and is run over Montpelier’s signature brush fences. Most races are over 2 miles and the horses make over 2 turns around the course.

Viewing is available right at the rail and is exhilarating beyond belief.  Watching the horses being saddled and walked in the paddock is also popular with spectators. A traditional presentation is made in the Winner’s Circle below the Race Tower for the winning horse, jockey and trainer.

Jockey’s silks distinguish the owners and are described in your race program. Other information about the horses, their recent race record, the weight they will be carrying, their color, sex and breeding are also included in the Race Program. Programs are for sale on Race Day.

Why PALM Ale?

PALM Ale has long been one of Europe’s top-selling specialty beers and when you taste it, we think you will know why. Made with English hops, French Barley, and Belgian yeast, PALM represents the best of European beer-making traditions. It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. PALM is a great alternative to traditional pilsners and lagers for the beer drinker looking for something a little different.

Noted beer writer Michael Jackson described PALM Speciale as “exceptionally fresh, with aromas of toasty malt, a bitter-orange palate and a tartly refreshing finish.”
