20th Anniversary Queens Cup | Local Events20th Anniversary Queens Cup - Come, Experience the thrill of the "Chase"
The Queen's Cup is like no other sporting and social event in the Charlotte region. A Saturday afternoon in the Piedmont countryside each spring is greeted with great anticipation.
Thousands come to see some of the most athletic thoroughbreds compete at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. The jockeys, dressed in bright colored silks, push their sleek steeds to clear four and a half foot jumps over a two and a quarter to as much as three miles rolling turf course. The prestige of over a record $145,000 in purse money to the winning owners and the opportunity to bask in the glory of the winner's circle is what it's all about from the horse's connections.
Beyond the excitement of the races, families and friends enjoy some fast-paced mingling and socializing each year. The Queen's Cup annually solidifies business as well as personal relationships; and keeps both strong by bringing people together year after year.
The Queen's Cup offers breathtaking views of the entire racecourse from the Lawn Boxes and Hospitality Tents on Member's Hill to key tailgating spots throughout the entire racecourse. For the first time in steeplechase history, "Personal Space Licenses" (PSL's) are being offered to our race patrons so that you and your family can enjoy your very own (and the same) Lawn Box or Tailgating Space for generations to come.
