Friday is the final day to purchase $20 discount general admission tickets for the Marion DuPont Scott Colonial Cup Steeplechase.

The 42nd running of the Camden fall classic is set for Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Springdale Race Course in Camden. Tickets and parking spaces of all varieties are currently on sale.

Post time for the first of six scheduled races that day is set for 12:30 p.m. The gates to the Springdale Race Course will swing open to the general public at 9 a.m. with the "Salute to the Military" kicking off at 11 a.m.

Once again this year, the Colonial Cup is inviting members of the United States military and their families to be guests at the races as the Carolina Cup Racing Association is giving away 3,000 complimentary general admission tickets, along with 500 complimentary infield reserved parking spaces to both active and retired military personnel and their families.

All tickets and parking spaces are now available on a "first come, first served" basis. Last year, these tickets and spaces went quickly. Military personnel should contact their ITT or MWR office on their respective bases to pick up a reservation form which must be completed and mailed and/or delivered to the Carolina Cup Racing Association at 200 Knights Hill Rd., Camden, SC 29020.

Military personnel may request up to six complimentary tickets and one infield reserved parking pass with their order.
