Spaceholders who purchased parking spaces and tickets for the 2017 Carolina Cup Steeplechase Races have until Friday, Dec. 1 to assure that they have those similar spaces for the 2018 Carolina Cup Races.

On Dec. 2, 2017, all 2016 Colonial Cup spaceholders will get their opportunity to secure a space(s) for the spring Carolina Cup. They must reply by Jan. 8, 2018.

The 84th running of the Camden spring classic will be held on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at the historic Springdale Race Course in Camden. In many instances and areas around the race course, prices have been lowered.

Those patrons who had tickets for this past spring’s Carolina Cup will have first preference as to whether they would like to renew their spot(s) for the 2018 event. They must reply to the Carolina Cup office by Dec. 1, 2017 in order to secure a space(s).

Any and all remaining spaces for the 2018 Carolina Cup will be placed on sale to the general public beginning Jan. 10, 2018.

Carolina Cup officials reported that sales over the past week have been as heavy as any week in recent years for the races and urge those who held spaces last year to act quickly in order to secure their spaces.
