Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup

Historic Springdale Racecourse's annual fall steeplechase race meet draws over 15,000 fans and horsemen from up and down the eastern seaboard and around the world. It's a day of family, tradition and fun.

Traditionally held in November, the Colonial Cup provides the steeplechase horse racing season’s grand finale and often decides all the national titles including Jockey of the Year, Trainer of the Year, and Horse of the Year. Established in 1970 as part of the state's Tricentennial Celebration, The Colonial Cup is a memorial to the founder of the eminent race-meet and benefactress of the course, Marion duPont Scott. It is a family day in the country enjoying a host of activities to enchant children and adults alike.

We are excited to feature a special "Saluting Our Military" celebration for the second year. Combine America's finest steeplechase horse racing with tailgating, boutiques at the Paddock Shops village, plus infield activities including Jack Russell Terrier races, a carousel, and mule wagon rides, and you've got a guaranteed day of fun for the whole family!
