The Atlanta Steeplechase, the region’s premier spring social event, combines unmistakable style, entertainment and fellowship with the thunderous and exhilarating sport of steeplechasing at Kingston Downs each year. The quiet Northwest Georgia countryside comes alive with jockeys in colorful silks, powerful thoroughbreds and carefree spectators gracing the majestic course during an unforgettable day of racing and fun.
This year’s event is especially exciting, as the Atlanta Steeplechase announces two new beneficiaries, Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation and the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Join the celebration that started in 1966 with fewer than 100 Guarantors enjoying the first Tent Party while picnickers and tailgaters established a custom of gourmet food as part of Atlanta’s unique ‘Chase day. Today, the 435 acre Kingston Downs hosts fun-loving spectators – whether at lavish private corporate parties “on the hill” or up close to the action in the general admission infield – for a great day of springtime racing. And, whether you have been a devoted spectator since the beginning, or you are new to the Steeplechase tradition, come experience the rite of spring that celebrates championship racing with food, fashion, fun and friendship.
