As this season’s steeplechase races prepare to reopen this spring, enjoy a blast from the past with sideline memories in and around Delaware.

The horses (and their riders) may be the main event, but the infectious energy on the other side of the rails completes a perfect day at the races. Things will be a bit different this year, but here are some choice moments from years past.
