The National Steeplechase Association’s condition book for the 2018 spring season is out, and the lineup promises record-smashing purses and the launch of the new Georgia Steeplechase meet. The program developed by NSA Director of Racing Bill Gallo Jr. will offer $2,890,000 in purses, up from the record $2,780,400 in 2017. After the condition book was posted, the Grand National purse was raised by 66% to $50,000.
