Fans of the International Gold Cup Races.

While the International Gold Cup races will run on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at Great Meadow the Board of Directors has now made the arduous decision to not include spectators at the races this year.  The COVID-19 pandemic has turned the world on its head, and steeplechase racing has not been immune to its far-reaching effects.

Our fans are so very important to the Races and to the sport of steeplechase racing!  This was an extremely difficult decision that based on the limitations placed on attendance by the Commonwealth of Virginia, came down to protecting the health, safety and welfare of everyone to the best of our abilities.

The National Steeplechase Association will host a free livestream of the Races so you can tune in online and tailgate from your living room or back yard!  Visit for up to date live stream information.

We are grateful for your patience during this challenging time and we look forward to your return to both the Virginia Gold Cup and the International Gold Cup in 2021!  

See you next year and stay safe and healthy,

The Virginia Gold Cup Board of Directors
