Fair Hill is not far from Newark Delaware (not to be confused with Newark NJ) and gas over in Delaware is cheaper because of less tax. In any case there's little or no pubic transportation in the area.
Apparently the place we used to hold rallies is now a sophisticated training facility for thoroughbreds.
From their website: "The Fair Hill Training Center is located in Cecil County, Maryland, just 10 minutes off I-95, midway between Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD.
"Situated on 350 acres of beautiful Maryland countryside adjoining the 5,600-acre Fair Hill Preserve (formerly the foxhunting estate of William DuPont, Jr.), the Fair Hill Training Center offers the freedom to customize your horse's training program. Trainers have the flexibility of using our one-mile dirt track, our 7/8-mile wood chip track or many acres of cross-country areas. During turf season, we also have a 7/8-mile turf course available.
"Horses are easily transported to East Coast tracks to race, without obligation to the individual Racing Secretaries"

Fair Hill is mainly a place for horsey activities. There is a jumping (hurdles or steeplechase) track there, which when we went for Pony Club activities we were strickly forbidden to set foot or hoof on. Some of the breeders cup races have been run there.
Fondest memory: When the Pony Club Rallies were held at Fair Hill in the early 80s they used to put the boys in the buildings down by the barns (these buildings didn't have doors), and the girls were up at the far end of the track in a barn. The barn had about 2 sinks and 2 toilets for 30 or 40 girls and their chaperones. We slept on the floor in one big room or brought our own cots.
