If you want an exciting day at the races — come to Camden!! Saturday, 15, November, is the Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup. This has often been called the Superbowl of Steeplechase. The first race was in 1970 and it attracts fans from across the country. What I love about this event is that it is more a family day than many other steeplechases. While you can expect 20,000 to 25,000 attendees, it is obvious that this is a famly event with plenty of tailgating and family fun. Included in the day are the Jack Russell terrier races, mule wagon rides, a carousel and the Paddock Shoppes in the retail village behind the Grandstand. Rent you a parking place on the infield and stand at the fence while youwatch the horses thunder by. In between races return to your tailgate for a libation and picinic fun.
Gates open at 0900 a.m. with the first race at 12:30 p.m. Go to http://www.carolina-cup.org for more information.
