Year two of the “Steeplechase Under New Ownership” era is coming up on April 6. Anthony-Scott and Phoebe Hobbs are the current owners of the Georgia Steeplechase, the spiritual successor to the famed Atlanta Steeplechase that ran for 52 years – same venue, same great racing… same great beverages if you’re into that kind of thing.
Last year’s event was the first under the new owners – see the aforementioned year two – but it went off without a hitch.
Extremely chilly temperatures may have kept the crowds down but for the most part, it’s exactly as you remember it. A bonus opportunity for this year’s event that could increase attendance, it comes on a different weekend than another Georgia April event, famed for a green playing field, the Masters.
