Saturday is the final day to purchase reduced price, advance tickets for the 79th running of the Carolina Cup Steeplechase Races at the Springdale Race Course on Saturday, April 2.

Once again this year, early bird general admission tickets will be sold for $30 each, if purchased by Saturday, March 19 at 5 p.m.

The figure represents a $15 discount from the $45 price, which will be charged after that date as well as at the gates the day of the races.

The gates to the Springdale Race Course will open to the general public at 9 a.m., with the first of six and/or seven races set to take to the course at 1:30 p.m. The day’s feature is the $50,000 Carolina First Carolina Cup (Grade III) Steeplechase.

Carolina Cup officials reported that parking spaces and tickets are still available for all areas except for College Park, which is sold out. There are very few grandstand boxes remaining.

For further information, please call the Carolina Cup Racing Association office at 432-6513 or (800) 780-8117 or visit
