Long a staple on Camden’s equine calendar, The Camden Hunter Trials is an day designed to showcase members of The Camden Hunt and its horses. The event, which celebrated its 80th anniversary with a change in date when it was run on Sunday, Nov. 15, may now be one in which Camden-based trainers might use to give their Colonial Cup jumpers one last non-National Steeplechase Association-sanctioned tune up. Six days after having taken Sue Sensor’s Cash Crop over Hunter Trial Hill -- which adjoins the Springdale Race Course on Knights Hill Rd. -- to compete in the Camden Hunter Trials, Arch Kingsley saddled the 4-year-old Distorted Humor gelding for its victory in the Sport of Kings Maiden Hurdle.
