High Hope Steeplechase: A Kentucky Tradition Continues

Sunday, May 18, 2014

For nearly fifty years, the High Hope Steeplechase has held a special place on the Kentucky spring calendar. It stands as one of the state's most beloved traditions, and the third Sunday in May has long been reserved for this cultural treasure. Brimming in history and known as the "sport of kings", steeplechasing stands as one of the most exciting equestrian competitions, and Lexington, Kentucky has been fortunate to host High Hope since its inception in 1966.
