Sumter Today: We check out training at the Springdale Race Course


The Springdale Race Course is home to the annual Carolina Cup in Camden, a steeplechase horse race that raises money for the local Kershaw County Medical Center. We stopped by the training center the other day, where trainer Richard Valentine and his crew were working with some of the thoroughbreds he is trusted with getting into race shape. It was a cold morning, but they horses were ready for some action.
