Equestrian enthusiasts gathered in Glyndon on April 26 to enjoy the Maryland Hunt Cup.

Charles Fenwick III, riding Askim, a horse trained by Fenwick's mother, won the 112th running of the race.

Fenwick's win continued a family tradition: His father, Charles Fenwick Jr., won the race five times. His mother, Ann D. Stewart, has won the race three times as a trainer.

About 7,500 fans perched in grassy fields and on fences to catch a view of the race, which is four miles with 22 fences and carries a $75,000 prize.
