The 5th Annual Marsh Tacky Beach Races on Daufuskie Island offered an estimated 1,500 spectators an exciting weekend with a variety of events designed to showcase the critically endangered Marsh Tacky plus Daufuskie Island’s unique amenities, local businesses and organizations. The races developed originally in 2009 to raise awareness for the breed’s current status, history, heritage and importance to South Carolina. The Carolina Marsh Tacky Association was the beneficiary of the silent auction fundraiser sponsored by Melrose on the Beach. Grand Champion of the 2013 races was stallion Jack Friday owned by Chris and MJ Goodwin ad ridden by Paige Cooley. Winner of the geldings class was Sweet Home Alabama owned by Leighton Bell and ridden by Wylie Bell. Winner of the mares class was Salt Creek Annie owned by Pete Simons and ridden by Lauren Simons. Let the bragging rights begin!
