    We are thinking about it - but it's hard when the showcase is Saturday and the show on Sunday. Not sure I can justify the two day trip particularly without a sense of how many attendees there will be...but considering it, given how many OTTBs we have in the barn and for sale.

    There will be stalls available for the weekend but are limited. There will also be a trail ride, tours of the training center and other activities on Sat.

    was planning to ride...but minor injury with bad timing will prevent it. ugh.

    Not sure about going to the showcase. I live close enough that I'd likely buy......even if I "forgot" my check book and trailer....they are a bit too easy to run home and get

    Not going to show but depending on the outcome of tomorrow I may think about entering a crew in the sale portion.

    A local facility is having a show to benefit CANTER MA on the same day which I had planned on attending but getting horses seen/sold may be more important.

    I cannot open the links on the computer I am on. Anyone know the price range expected for the showcase? My trainer has a few for sale, but their prices are low-mid 5 figures. They are well off the track and have good show records.

    We plan to bring 3- but which 3 I do not know! We have entered those same three (whoever the lucky horses will be) in the baby chicken 2 ft division on Sunday- It will be an adventure for sure. Thanks to all who are organizing this!

    If you go to the RRTP site, Steuart and Erin have put a TBs for All! Fair Hill category on the classified section- looks like prices are Free-$500-10K+.

    I have my mare registered but I'm not sure if I can actually go. Seems like a great event though!

    Hmmmmm

    May take mine to the showcase. Not showing as the 1 class only per height for the jumpers is a waste plus there's a full Tb show the weekend prior at the NJ horse park. So competing where the greenie can go in the ring more than once, makes more sense.

    The showcase is interesting but I agree its hard to get a sense of how many folks will come out to seriously look.

    Makes me a little sad I'm here - I could take Nas (since Rose never actually raced)! Oh well, hopefully they will have it next year.

    I am the show secretary and we are looking forward to a fun day. So far we have over 56 horses entered in the show on Sunday.
