The big race may be months away, but Charleston is already chomping at the bit to start the festivities for Steeplechase of Charleston 2019.

Austin Walker, CEO of the The Randolph Company, made an announcement earlier today that will ensure the future of the sport here in the Holy City, while connecting the people with their beloved local newspaper.

Walker, who bought the event in 2018, sold Steeplechase to The Post and Courier in a landmark deal. He stated The Randolph Company will aid in the transition, assisting with vendors, sponsors and other important aspects.

Steeplechase of Charleston is slated to run on November 17th at the Stono Ferry Racetrack in Hollywood.
