Franklin Goree Smith's Elloree Training Center announced today that Equine Savings is the title sponsor of the 51st running of the Equine Savings Elloree Trials.
Several trials will be named for Equine Savings partners: The Toro, The Exmark, The Farm Paint and The Equine Savings.
The Equine Savings Elloree Trials are run at the Elloree Training Center and is a charitable event benefiting local charities.
This year's races will be held on Saturday, March 23 at the Elloree Training Center just outside of Downtown Elloree. Gates open at 8 a.m. and races begin at 1 p.m.
Packed with tailgaters and horse lovers, the Equine Savings Elloree Trials has been a tradition in Elloree for over 50 years. Over the years, loyal supporters from all over the southeast have had the opportunity to see flat racing at its best, with many of the competitors going on to win major events, including the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes.
Franklin “Goree” Smith, President of the Palmetto Jockey Club, announced the sponsorship: “Equine Savings has stepped up to support the entire South Carolina Equine Community at the local level, and we sure need more companies like them in our industry.”
“We've been able to create something that involves people with the horse community by informing them about horseracing while offering them a day of fun. It means a lot to us to let others enjoy the racing aspect of our profession,” Smith added.
The Equine Savings Elloree Trials benefits six different charities and organizations in the area: the Lions Club, the Elloree Athletic Club, the Evergreen Garden Club, the Knights of Pythias, the Mentor Book Club and the Elloree Garden Club.
The Elloree Training Center is located just outside of downtown Elloree, S.C, which is midpoint between, and an easy drive from, both Columbia and Charleston. It specializes in boarding, breaking & training, sales prep, racing stables, breeding facilities, stallions and lay-ups. For more information contact them at: 803-897-2616
