SIX RACES PAYING OUT a record $325,000 in purse money has provided the March 31 Carolina Cup with some added muscle.

With the deadline approaching for previous year’s reserved parking spaceholders to have their shot to renew their spaces, members of the general public will get their chance to secure spots for the 84th running of the Carolina Cup Steeplechase Races.

Those persons who held reserved spaces for the Colonial Cup races have until Monday, Jan. 8 to secure them again. All remaining spaces inside the course will be put on sale beginning that day.

The Camden spring classic at the Springdale Race Course in Camden will be run Saturday, March 31.

Here is the information on tickets, parking and dining options for the 84th running of the Carolina Cup.

The day’s first race will meet the starter’s flag at 1:30 p.m. The gates to the course will open at 9 a.m. to the general public.

The Carolina Cup has taken in the $150,000 Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup Steeplechase (Gr. 1) as the feature race on a card of five jump races and one on the flat which will offer a total purse of $325,000, which is a one-day record for a Camden race meeting.

In addition, the signature Carolina Cup for  novice jumpers will carry a $75,000 purse, and races will be offered for fillies and mares in the $40,000 Life’s Illusion and for four-year-olds in the $30,000 Raymond G. Woolfe Memorial.
