The Colonial Downs racing season opened July 28 in New Kent and continues every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 5:30 PM. The track will present a special pari-mutuel card of racing Sunday August 2 as a make up program from opening day — which was originally scheduled for Monday July 27 but was cancelled in advance due to extreme heat conditions.
Three non-betting steeplechase races will precede the wagering card at 3:30 PM. The second will go off at approximately 4:00 and the third at around 4:30 PM. Those will be available to view at nationalsteeplechase.com.
