Groupon: Atlanta Steeplechase, Saturday April 16th!
I can't wait!! We haven't planned an outing like this for awhile so I'm excited, plus I get to go see some horses and see some dogs doing a flying disc competition and much more! I think it will be fun for all of us. :)
The Atlanta Steeplechase brings equine entertainment to more than 30,000 guests each year with its hoof-happy races at Kingston Downs. Enjoy a great view from virtually any seat as jockeys race their steeds around the track in search of the finish sign and some edible flowers. Not just a horse race, the Atlanta Steeplechase entertains guests with a full schedule of family-friendly events, including dogs chasing flying discs, pony and hay rides, sky-diving demonstrations, and whinnying workshops. A general-admission ticket includes parking and grants access to the infield, where mustang mavens tote picnic accouterments for trackside comfort. The Subscriber Backstretch package includes reserved parking along with admission for six—enough for Brady-esque broods.
Kingston Downs opens its hallowed halls at 9 a.m.—rain or shine—and the course closes at 6:30 p.m. The first race begins at 1:30 p.m., with the last race ending at around 5 p.m. No vehicles are allowed into the Steeplechase grounds after 2 p.m. Despite the shoes, horse hooves are extremely sensitive, so guests are requested not to bring any glass to the track.
