Horse racing will return to Kingston Downs in 2018. The Georgia Steeplechase, out of Cobb County, announced that they will run a featured event on the banks of the Etowah River April 7th.

The announcement comes after the Atlanta Steeplechase announced in April that they will no longer run the event.  The move ended over 50 years of horse racing for the group.

Anthony Scott Hobbs told Bartow County business leaders Thursday that proceeds from the event will be earmarked for local charities.
The Atlanta Steeplechase said that fundraising efforts became to big of an obstacle to overcome.
