HITS Chicago Series

May - September, 2018

In 2018, the iconic Balmoral Park will once again welcome equestrians from near and far, this time for 13 weeks of unparalleled hunter/jumper competition. Rich in thoroughbred and harness racing history, Balmoral Park will be home to HITS’ inaugural Midwest show, and in partnership with Pat Boyle/Showplace Productions, will feature USEF Rated National & Premier Hunters and 4* & 5* Jumpers, as well as a USHJA International Hunter Derby, FEI rated events and qualifiers for the HITS Championship. The spacious 200-acre property boasts countless hospitality amenities including a 4,467 seat mint-condition grand stand, and a state-of-the-art VIP Clubhouse featuring climate-controlled seating overlooking all of the competition rings.  

Balmoral Park is conveniently located less than one hour from Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
