For Dr. Larry Parrott of Camden, this year’s Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup not only marked the 44th anniversary of the steeplechase event, but his 40th year of attendance. This year, he and his wife, Joy, along with their granddaughters, Bethany and Mabry Parrott, came out to tailgate, visit with friends and enjoy the races. “Our tailgate is rather small this year, but there have been years when we went all out,” Joy Parrott said Even though the day was overcast and began with light rain, the Parrotts agreed that, rain or shine, they would have made it to the Cup.
