The following message from Foxfield Racing’s Board of Directors appeared on the www.foxfieldraces/spring website. The annual steeplechase tradition will continue in Charlottesville but it will be in fall, on Sunday October 3. A complete list of 2021 Point-to-Point and NSA sanctioned steeplechase meets in Virginia is at virginiahorseracing.com.
We wish all a Happy New Year and we are all looking forward to 2021.
As you know, our spring races are scheduled for April 24th. After much careful consideration our Board has decided that the chances of the pandemic being well enough controlled by April is slim enough that we will not be able to have a normal race meet this spring. Things could change but not in enough time to prepare for a normal meet.
Therefore, we will put all our efforts into our Fall Races on October 3rd. We will have an enhanced event with emerging sponsorship opportunities and offer increased purses for the races to attract a top field of runners. We will be announcing these plans as we emerge from the pandemic and look forward to hosting everyone in October.
Thank you for supporting the Foxfield Races.
