Tickets for the 83rd running of The Mullikin Law Firm Carolina Cup Steeplechase Races are now on sale.

The 2017 Camden spring classic will be run over the historic Springdale Race Course on Saturday, April 1.

As has been the case, invitations will be sent to last year’s space holders who will have the right of first refusal as to whether they would like to retain their space(s) for this spring’s event. The deadline for that is Friday, Feb. 17.

When the deadline passes for those reservations to be renewed or, not, all available space will be placed on sale to the general public.

There is not a price increase for the 2017 event and, once again, those purchasing their $30 general admission race tickets by Saturday, March 18, will receive a $15 discount from those purchased thereafter.

Information as to the grandstand seats, grandstand boxes and premium seating beneath the tent on the home stretch will be announced as details become available.
