The Piedmont Fox Hounds Point-to-Point took place on March 25th, at the historic Salem Racecourse in Upperville, VA. The card was made up of eight races, ranging from a mile and a quarter to three and a half miles around the track. This meet is important to local fans of the sport who get to come out in the Northern Virginia area and see one of the first racing events of the year.
The story of the day was Jockey Teddy Davies winning his second Rokeby Bowl in the last two years. He won the race last year at Piedmont on Mystic Strike. He returned and won it again this year on a horse named To Be or Not to Be.
