National Steeplechase Association

Covid-19 may have taken the wind out of the sails of the 2020 National Steeplechase Association calendar, but this year of unique challenges has also brought out the best in the tight-knit community. During the abbreviated spring campaign, which resulted in the cancellation of all but two meets, generous benefactors stepped forward to donate purse money to reward horsemen for keeping their athletes in training. Similarly, this fall sponsors and donors banded together to enhance funding to live stream the action from six sanctioned meets, most of which are being run without fans.

Now, once again, supporters of the sport have come together to boost the morale of the racing community and give horsemen one more chance to compete.

On Saturday, the team at Willowdale, which conducts a spring meet in May at the Kennett Square, Pa., race course -- one of the events scuttled by the pandemic -- will put on a spectator-free, three race point-to-point, anchored by a fourth, NSA-sanctioned, race, the inaugural $7,500 Louis “Paddy” Neilson III over timber.
