How to Dress for The Hunt

More than a Day at the Races

The 99th annual Far Hills Race Meeting—often referred to as The Hunt—will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 at Moorland Farm in Far Hills. For any socialite, this is the place to be. 

Much more than just a day at the races, The Hunt is New Jersey’s premier social and sporting event. The gathering attracts a large fan base. Boasting the largest purses in the industry, it brings steeplechase racing to a broad audience.

What is one to wear to this unrivaled social event? The weather in late October can be tricky. Temperatures can range from chilly fall weather to a hot summer-like day. Christina Gianni Avellino, owner of Bling by Design, styled her friend, Gabby Hyman, with two looks that can be layered to work regardless of the weather. With either of these ensembles, you'll be prepared to "embrace the chase!"
