The Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens, known as the "event of the season" and always falling on the first Saturday in November, brings family and friends together to watch thoroughbred horses race over timber and brush hurdles. The centerpiece of this wonderful day is the five nationally sanctioned steeplechase races.
Tailgating together, either in tents, box seats or the infield, guests select their favorite horse in each of the five sanctioned races and cheer them to the finish; they entertain their children with stick pony races, pony rides, rock climbing wall, The Jack Russell Terrier Races sponsored by Woodruff Properties, and in the Carmike Kid's Corral. There are also two junior horse races for selected competitive riders sixteen years old and younger. You can enjoy bagpipers as well as the parade of the Midland Foxhounds, the Southern Views Magazine Hat Contest, the 103.7 Lite FM Tailgate Competition and the Ledger-Enquirer Terrace Box Competition. The day includes a variety of entertainment for all ages.
Boxholders can purchase tickets to the Horseshoes Tent where you can dine on Lillie's Q Barbeque and enjoy a complimentary craft beer and wine tasting while following your favorite football team on the large screen televisions. Don't miss the Wells Fargo Auction Arcade Located at the Top of the Terrace. Buy your tickets now for November 2, 2013.
