*** RACE DAY UPDATE ***

The Virginia Gold Cup Association, along with the other Spring race meets, has made the decision to move race dates for 2021. 

We will be hosting the 96th running of the 
Virginia Gold Cup on May 29, 2021. 

This decision was made to have the most favorable race environment for our spectators and our horseman.  We will return to the first Saturday in May for 2022.

 

We are working with the State of Virginia and public health authorities on a safe environment for a physical event in 2021 and will provide updated information as it becomes available.

We look forward to seeing you at the races!

Please keep yourself and your family safe.
