The Virginia Equine Alliance (VEA) is comprised of these 4 organizations:

Virginia Thoroughbred Association
Virginia Gold Cup Races
Virginia Horsemen's Benevolent & Protective Association
Virginia Harness Horse Association

 The VEA is always working to secure race meets and venues to host pari-mutuel thoroughbred and standardbred races. When details are available, that information will be posted here along with condition books/sheets, race office personnel contacts and all other pertinent details.

The VEA is also seeking out potential Off Track Betting (SWF) locations around Virginia in areas where there are already SWF referendums in places, such as Henrico County, Richmond, Hampton, Chesapeake, etc. We have brought this aspect of convenience wagering to four existing restaurants/bars so far. Details will always be announced here as soon as they become available. In the meanwhile, check our “News” and social media pages each week for a listing of the top thoroughbred and harness races to wager via any of our four online partners —,, and
