95th Running of the Virginia Gold Cup Races At Great Meadow

Date: June 27, 2020
Time: 9:00 am  to  7:00 pm

Due to the coronavirus, the spring Virginia Gold Cup Races have been rescheduled to Saturday June 27 at Great Meadow in The Plains and will be held without spectators. The fall International Gold Cup Races will still take place on its regularly scheduled date of Saturday October 24th.

In spring, a combination of timber and hurdle races will be contested without wagering.
