May 27, 2002|By Kent Baker

FAIR HILL - The winner of the 2001 Breeders' Cup Steeplechase, Quel Senor, tops a field of six scheduled to jump in the $30,000 Miles Valentine Memorial Stakes, the headliner on a 10-race card at the Fair Hill Races today.

Post time is 12:30 p.m. at the track at the intersection of Routes 213 and 273 west of Newark, Del., and north of Elkton.

Eighty-nine horses are listed on the program, which offers the only American steeplechase meeting with pari-mutuel betting. Normally, about $200,000 is wagered at the picturesque track, which races just once yearly.

Quel Senor is trained by defending National Steeplechase Association champion Tom Voss. They face a quality field that includes Grade I winner Invest West and four other stakes winners in the past three years.

Voss leads the trainer standings again with 13 victories, including the second leg of the Steeplechase Triple Crown.
