MATCH Series Race Day at Colonial Downs

Date: August 23, 2021

On Monday, Aug. 23, Colonial Downs will host four $100,000 dirt stakes in the Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MATCH) Series: The Victory Gallop, Love Sign, Chesapeake and Seeking The Pearl.

The 2021 MATCH Series is a cooperative venture between Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, the Maryland Jockey Club, the Virginia HBPA and Colonial Downs.

Since about 80% of Colonial Downs races over the years have been contested over the Secretariat Turf Course, this event offers fans a unique chance to see four premier races on the dirt track — which is closest to fans standing and cheering trackside.

Four dirt stakes in the MATCH Series will be held at Colonial on Monday August 23.

General admission and parking is free, so this is a must-see event if you enjoy watching horses compete up close and personal.
