Saturday, October 15 was a beautiful day to drink on a farm.
Such was the agenda for many affluent tri-state area twenty-somethings, who flock to New Jersey’s Moorland Farms for the annual Far Hills Race Meeting, informally referred to as “The Hunt.”
Sure, there’s horse racing, and the event is a charity benefit for healthcare in the region, but the real attraction is the infamous tailgate that takes place every year in the infield. According to NJ.com, last year’s event saw 37 arrests for disorderly behavior, and about 200 police officers were on hand this time around.
Below are some of the craziest sights from this year’s race, which brought an estimated 35,000 visitors.
Welcome to “The Hunt,” officially known as the Far Hills Race Meeting.
The annual event is held in support of healthcare in the region, and regularly brings in tens of thousands of attendees.
Many have elaborate setups, and some even bring in their own bartenders.
But the real party is in the infield.
This year, the tailgate was described as a “college party times like 50” by one attendee.
