The second of three Biscuits and Breezing public works will be held Saturday at the Springdale Race Course.

The series will conclude Saturday, March 16, two weeks before the 85th running of the Carolina Cup Races on Saturday, March 30. 

The three-week series is sponsored by Modern Turf.

The public is invited to come out to watch horses train in several sets beginning at 8 a.m. 

The workouts are free of charge. Guests should enter the race course through the main gate on Knights Hill Rd. and may park in the area behind the grandstand. Guests are reminded to bring their own chairs while coffee and breakfast items will be provided free of charge. Children are invited to come to the workouts but the CCRA asks that all dogs be kept at home.

Additionally, spectators are reminded that horses have the right of way throughout the course of the morning.

The exact number of horses and sets which will take the track will be determined by the trainers who will be available to discuss which of their horses is training that day and what particular race the horse is being pointed toward.

The horses will run in front of the grandstand allowing morning guests a unique look at how a horse is being trained leading up to a race. Trainers and riders, if possible, will be available to answer questions from the public.
