Patrick Smithwick with his new release Racing Time: A Memoir of Love, Loss & Liberation

Born of the legendary Smithwick steeplechase family, Patrick explores his lifelong relationships with legendary horsemen Tom Voss and Speedy Kiniel, and the effects their deaths had on him - and his place in his family's legacy; in the process, Patrick takes us from foxchasing in Maryland to racing in Saratoga and back again. Long time steeplechasers and foxchasers will be intrigued to read the poetic sketches of friends and legends past and present. 

Pat Straat and her inaugural memoir To Mars With Love

Long time HCIBH member, when Dr. Patricia Ann Straat joined Howard County Hunt in the 1970s, she was hard at work on the famed Viking Program, and in this memoir she contrasts the wild ride to Mars with her first wild rides foxhunting, seamlessly moving between these two incongruent worlds. Long time foxchasers will find some familiar friends in this book!
