January 23, 2014 

— The daughter of American composer and songwriter Burt Bacharach is joining South Carolina's equestrian team.

Coach Boo Major said Thursday that Raleigh Bacharach signed a letter of intent to join the Gamecocks in 2014. Bacharach will ride with South Carolina's hunt seat team and will compete both over fences and on the flat.

Major says Bacharach is the Gamecocks first signee of the year from the west coast and is a talented rider. She attends Campbell Hall School in Los Angeles.

Bacharach's father, Burt, has won Academy Awards and Grammys for his five decades of work.
