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.

Born in Baltimore and raised at Meadow Run, her parents' home in Glyndon, she was the daughter of Redmond C. Stewart, a lawyer who owned Grand National steeplechase champion Ben Nevis II, and Ann Cochran Stewart, a fox hunter. She attended the Calvert School and was a 1959 Garrison Forest School graduate. She also earned a diploma at the Foxcroft School in Middleburg, Va., and made her debut at the Bachelors Cotillion the same year.

Welter Weight, the defending Maryland Hunt Cup champion, will be missing, but all of the other top timber horses in the area have assembled for today's My Lady's Manor steeplechase race in Monkton. A strong field of 10 geldings is scheduled to go to post for the three-mile event over timber fences, the first race in Maryland's Triple Crown. Included are the venerable Saluter, who always seems to have problems in the Manor, and former two-time Hunt Cup winner Buck Jakes, who -- like many other entrants -- is making his season debut.

Charles Fenwick III got the ride on Rosbrian just two days before yesterday's 103rd Grand National steeplechase in Butler, and more good fortune came his way during the race when the front-runner fell at the final fence. Rosbrian, an Irish-bred gelding, took command of the 3 1/4 -mile test when Bruno Castelli, who had led all the way, hit the top rail of the 18th and last fence with his front hooves and tumbled to the ground. Rosbrian surged past Bug River to win by a head. "I said I would stick near Bug River and go when he goes," Fenwick said.

On a miserable, rainy day in Butler, jockey Charles Fenwick III, trainer Ann D. Stewart and owner Irv Naylor left the 104th running of the Grand National Steeplechase with the sunniest dispositions. That trio combined to send out Askim to win the $30,000 feature in come-from-behind fashion before a crowd noticeably thinned by the weather. The New Zealand-born import prevailed by a comfortable margin over Sky And Sea, who set a leisurely pace after the early front-runner, Salmo, refused the water jump and sent rider Roger Horgan flying over the fence alone midway through the race.
