The opening of the Maryland sanctioned timber racing season, usually the second Saturday in April, signifies the true start of spring to many Marylanders; much more so than the weather or the almanac. For the next three Saturdays, thousands of asphalt-bound city denizens will walk on grass for the first time since last fall as they join their country cousins to follow the colors of the amateur jockeys flying over timber fences in three or four-mile races that are true tests of man and horse.
