Thanksgiving Weekend Stakes Bonanza at Virginia Bets OTBs

Date: November 21, 2018 - November 25, 2018
Time: 12:00 pm  to  11:00 pm

Thanksgiving weekend provides horseplayers with a feast of stakes races to watch and wager from tracks around the country. On Thanksgiving Eve, the action starts at Zia Park and Penn National and continues into Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The four Virginia Bets Off Track Betting (OTB) Centers at Breakers Sports Grille (Henrico County), Ponies & Pints (Richmond), Buckets Bar & Grill (Chesapeake) and The Windmill OTB Sports Grill (Collinsville/Martinsville) will be closed on Thanksgiving Day — the bars/restaurants themselves may be open though — just not the betting aspect.

The Windmill OTB in Collinsville is inside the Dutch Inn hotel for horseplayers looking for a getaway weekend
