VTA Member Events at Colonial Downs Summer Season Announced

The highly anticipated “More Racing, More Money” thoroughbred racing season at Colonial Downs is right around the corner! The 9-week meet will run from July 11 thru September 7, with racing every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:45 PM. 

General admission and parking are free, but Virginia Thoroughbred Association (VTA) members can enjoy the action in the fourth floor VTA Sky Suite every racing day except Virginia Derby Day (September 6). On race days, VTA members can simply take an elevator to the 4th floor level and present your VTA card/credential at the podium to receive access to the suite. Light appetizers and beverages will be served, along with the best view in the house!

Three special event days will be held as well during the meet, two of which bookend the season — Virginia-Bred/Sired Stakes Day on July 11 (opening day) and Virginia-Restricted Stakes Day on September 7 (closing day). A special Legislators Day event on New Kent County Virginia Derby Day (September 6) will be held as well. Mark your calendar for these big three and keep checking vabred.org for more details
