Lovisah Perdue Cockey and her husband, Joshua Hutchins Cockey III, can trace their roots back 250-plus years to ancestors who first settled in the area known as Monkton. Lovisah Cockey was born on her family's farm and now lives across the street on 10 acres. Joshua Cockey, a retired high school teacher, was born in Monkton's general store, which now is the Manor Tavern restaurant. Both grew up in Monkton, worked on farms, met at church - and have spent nearly all of their 64 years of their marriage there.

Despite ground that has been termed "rock hard" by race chairman H. Turney McKnight, the 102nd edition of the My Lady's Manor Saturday kicks off Maryland's three timber classic races. The My Lady's Manor expects to have full fields for the three-race program. A total of 45 horses have been entered for the three, meaning the racing surface hasn't deterred horsemen from a card offering $52,500 purse money, including $30,000 for the feature, a three-mile test that will start the day at 1:30 p.m. On successive Saturdays, the Grand National at Butler and the $75,000 Maryland Hunt Cup at Glyndon, one of the toughest timber events in the world, will follow.

Timber racer Incomplete bided his time trailing the leaders for most of the 99th running of the My Lady's Manor steeplechase race Saturday in Monkton before finding another gear and running away from the rest of the 10-horse field to win by seven lengths. Incomplete, an 8-year-old bay, is 3-for-3 in National Steeplechase Association-sanctioned races since beginning his career over timber two years ago. "My horse has a great quarter-of-a-mile kick," said Incomplete jockey Charlie Fenwick III, "and he has enough tactical speed to put him wherever I want to put him, so that's what I did, and it worked out."

The master of the Manor will strive for his fifth straight victory today as Maryland timber racing's spring season opens with a flourish.

The last jumping season was a discouraging one for Jack Fisher, who unsuccessfully strove to defend the National Steeplechase Association trainers' title he had captured in 2004. He never gathered any real momentum and labored home fifth in the standings. As the Monkton resident put it: "I didn't have a brilliant year." But spring brings a fresh outlook and Fisher will half-empty his stable today when he dispatches 11 horses to three meetings, including the My Lady's Manor, which will stage its 96th renewal in Fisher's homestanding area.

A hot timber racer and a rising star are expected to duel in the 99th running of the My Lady's Manor steeplechase in Monkton on Saturday. South Monarch, a 7-year-old dark bay on a three-race winning streak, is one of the favorites in the 12-horse field; the other top contender is Incomplete, an 8-year-old who is two-for-two in sanctioned timber races but will be making a leap in class. The $30,000 My Lady's Manor marks the first of three successive weekends of Maryland steeplechase races, with the Grand National in Butler on April 18 and the Maryland Hunt Cup in Glyndon on April 25. The 19-race National Steeplechase Association spring season, which includes events throughout the East and Southeast, concludes at Fair Hill on May 23. For local spectators, steeplechase racing is as much about enjoying the Maryland countryside and the heritage of traditional overland horse racing as it is about the competition.

The Maryland steeplechasing season begins in earnest today with the 98th running of the My Lady's Manor timber race in Monkton, an event that draws the largest single-day crowd of any sporting endeavor in Harford County. "On a good day, we estimate 10,000 people will attend," said race committee chairman Turney McKnight. "Of course, it's best for the horses if it's cool and cloudy but not for the gate." Seven are scheduled to jump in the feature, which carries an upgraded purse of $30,000 for the second straight year.

When Turney McKnight first became involved with the My Lady's Manor steeplechase race in 1978, it offered a purse of $1,000. Today, when the 97th edition of the race is staged at Monkton, the offering will be 30 times that much. "We've tried to make it more of a complete afternoon, and it has grown up pretty rapidly," said McKnight, the race chairman. "We've added vendors, entertainment, and it's a nice day in a very beautiful setting. People react to it the way they do to Saratoga." Trainer Jack Fisher, one of the local titans in timber racing, believes a lot of the credit goes to McKnight.

It's April, which means spring has sprung and warm weather and sunny days (we hope!) are on the horizon. Savor the outdoors this weekend with one of Maryland's venerable traditions: the steeplechase. Originally run on a course oriented to church steeples (how it derived its name), the steeplechase now refers to a distance race for horses and riders, who have to navigate terrain that includes fences and ditches. Today's race is the 97th running of the My Lady's Manor, with jockeys and horses competing for a $30,000 purse.

A tradition more than a century old will be renewed today with nine horses scheduled to go postward in the first of Maryland's steeplechase Triple Crown series, the 92nd running of The My Lady's Manor in Harford County. And, on paper, the $20,000 race figures to be ruled by an Ironfist again. The 9-year-old gelding trained by the state's grand master at the jumps, Tom Voss, is favored to capture his third straight My Lady's cup over the 3-mile course that has been softened somewhat by recent rainfall but is still expected to be rather firm.

The Maryland and national timber racing seasons will be launched in earnest today when the 95th annual My Lady's Manor program is conducted in Monkton. A three-race card starting with the $25,000 feature will begin at 1:30 p.m., with eight contenders scheduled to go in the three-mile My Lady's Manor event over timber fences. Nearly 10,000 fans are expected for Harford County's most-attended sporting event in what promises to be ideal spring weather. Until last year -- when Irv Naylor's New Zealand-bred, Askim, prevailed -- trainer Tom Voss had dominated at My Lady's Manor in the 2000s, winning three straight with Ironfist and scoring again two years ago with Sam Sullivan.
