A field of 13 horses has been entered for Saturday's 96th running of the Maryland Hunt Cup.
The four-mile race over 22 timber fences is run at Worthington Farm on Tufton Avenue near Hunt Valley.
When the entries were drawn yesterday, there was one glaring omission.
Revelstoke, impressive winner of the Grand National point-to-point Saturday and undefeated in five career timber races, will not be in the lineup.
Another entry, Bold Seven, is also expected to be pulled from the starting field because of an injury.
"Revelstoke bled [through the nostrils] after the Grand National and is through for the year," said rider-trainer Jack Fisher. "I could wait a few weeks and maybe start him again this spring, but we're not going to. We'll try again next year, and hope for better luck."
