It wasn’t coolers, but kegs that turned out to be the story of the day in Springdale Race Course’s College Park at Saturday’s Carolina Cup. Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews, handling College Park security for the first time, had said he planned to randomly check coolers carried in by anyone appearing to be under the age of 21. Those plans changed after a number of deputies stayed up most of Friday night and early Saturday morning searching for a missing child in Elgin.
