On a day of racing which some could argue was wind-aided by a steadily swirling breeze, Saturday’s 79th running of the Carolina Cup Steeplechase Races had a bit of everything for everyone. If you liked tight finishes, the first three of the day’s six races were won by a length, a length and a nose (with the latter being determined by a photo finish), respectively. The endings in the fourth and six races came by 2 ½ and two lengths, respectively.
