Steeplechase horses in the Carolinas whose owners and trainers have an eye cast on the early season openers now have a place to give their horses a final go ’round prior to the races which count.The inaugural Charleston Trials will launch the 2013 National Steeplechase Association season. The Sunday, March 17 racing program at the Charleston Cup course in Hollywood, S.C., will feature two races over National Fences and two flat races.None of the races will offer purses or count toward a horse’s race record. They will help to prepare horses for the remainder of the spring schedule, which includes the Aiken Spring Races on March 23 and the Carolina Cup in Camden on March 30.
