TR&HC Annual Block House Steeplechase Races

Since 1947, the TR&HC Block House Steeplechase Races have ushered in spring with elegant hats, tailgating, family reunions, and the sound & sight of thoroughbreds thundering past for a win. The Block House is the longest running steeplechase in the state of North Carolina and crowds of 18,000 to 20,000 annually attend the races.
