WE CAME BACK, AND THANKS TO YOU…
THE RETURN OF THE QUEEN’S CUP SILVER JUBILEE IS OFFICIALLY A WRAP!
This past weekend, patrons and racing fans from across the Carolinas, the USA, England, and Ireland made their way to Mineral Springs, North Carolina, for the Queen’s Cup’s triumphant return to its traditional Spring weekend to finally celebrate its Silver Jubilee. And celebrate we did with a record sell-out crowd, a beautiful, sunny spring day, and exceptionally close racing finishes. While we anticipated and warned of traffic delays due to the rural roads that surround us and the sell-out crowds, we could not foresee the additional challenges that added to the problem. We are already working hard to resolve those issues which were out of our control so that traffic might flow more smoothly in 2023. The 26th Annual Queen’s Cup will be held next year, Saturday, April 29, 2023; “Always, the Last Saturday of Every April.”
Finally, for those who supported us these past two years during the two-year “COVID pause” and this year, a heartfelt thank you for your continued support of this wonderful springtime tradition in the Charlotte region. We’re really glad to be back and we look forward to seeing you at the Silver Jubilee of the Queen’s Cup Steeplechase, the Last Saturday of Every April!
