Scenes From the Virginia Breeder’s Awards Night at Great Meadow
The 2022 Virginia Thoroughbred Association Championship Awards Ceremony kicked off Virginia Gold Cup weekend at Great Meadow in The Plains on May 6th, first time the awards have been held at the trackside Turf Club chalet since 2019. A rainy and cool evening could not damper the celebration which was welcomed by all. The 2020 edition was cancelled due to Covid and 2021’s was held at Colonial Downs, with award winners being recognized between races.
The weather turned colder and the rain intensified even more on Gold Cup Saturday, but thousands came out anyways to tailgate in the adverse cold weather and create new memories.
