Temple Gwathmey: the man, the race and more

- -

If you know the name Temple Gwathmey, chances are it’s the steeplechase race that comes to mind. But long before the race, the man (James Temple Gwathmey) was a major owner, sportsman and businessman. When he died in 1924, his friends created a race and a memorial fund in his name. Both continue today. We talk to his great-grandsons Ned and Temple Grassi, plus get some insight into the National Steeplechase Foundation from Charlie Fenwick and check in with Doug Fout about the Middleburg Spring Races.
