Mad Hatters Horse Around at Stoneybrook Steeplechase, April 9th

Churchill Downs may be hundreds of miles away (566 to be exact: That's eight hours and twenty seven minutes in traffic, Google mappers), but the spirit of the country's most famous horse race is alive and well with celebrations worth betting on - all much closer to home.

Pack your tailgate with a healthy dose of Southern charm and hospitality, Aunt M's crispy fried chicken, refreshing mint juleps, Kentucky punch, or Presbyterian bourbon presses. And don't forget your fancy hat with the gigantic brim! Because Saturday, April 9th will mark the 65th running of the Stoneybrook Steeplechase, the official rite of spring in the Sandhills.

Stoneybrook offers a day in the country to thousands of spectators. The thrill and beauty of horse racing as well as enjoying a day with family and friends is an event not to be missed. Bringing people together time and time again for social and business opportunities is a Stoneybrook hallmark!

Race Day Activities - Stoneybrook features an ever-growing array of activities for both children and adults. From the traditional tailgate and hat contests to stick horse races, expansive Kid Zone, vendor area, pub tent, beer tent and opening ceremonies, there is something for everyone.

History 101 - Stoneybrook's rich history can be traced back to the dream of an Irishman, Michael "Mickey" G. Walsh. After immigrating to the United States in 1925 at the age of 18, Walsh began competing in the English equestrian events of "hunting" and "jumping" and by the 1930's  he was winning top honors as both a rider and trainer. He relocated to Southern Pines, NC in1939 where he earned another outstanding equestrian reputation as a trainer of steeplechase and timber horses.

Stoneybrook was born in the late 1940's when Walsh bought his own riding and training stable. He created the first Stoneybrook racetrack where the annual event of the Stoneybrook Steeplechase was first enjoyed.

Following Walsh's death in 1993, the prized Stoneybrook land was sold for equine land development, and the racetrack closed in 1996. However, Mickey's dream lived on through a group of local horse enthusiasts who formed a nonprofit charitable foundation, giving rise to the Carolina Horse Park. The Foundation's original purpose continues today: To promote land preservation for horses and to promote equestrian education, training and competition.

The Stoneybrook Steeplechase was revived in 2001 with the 50th running of the race. 2016 will mark the 65th running of the Sandhills most beloved spring social event, The Stoneybrook Steeplechase. The Carolina Horse Park is the permanent home of the race as well as the site for other nationally recognized equestrian competitions throughout the year. Each year nearly 10,000 people come to the Stoneybrook Steeplechase to watch nationally acclaimed horses, jockeys and trainers vie for $80,000 in purse money.

The Carolina Horse Park ensures that Mickey Walsh's dream lives on at Stoneybrook.

The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
