Virginia Gold Cup Moved to May 29 with Spectators

Thoroughbred Daily News, Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 9:50 am |  

The Virginia Gold Cup, one of the country’s oldest steeplechase races and traditionally held on the first Saturday in May, will be moved for 2020 to Saturday, May 29. Contested last year in June and livestreamed without spectators due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s edition will allow limited spectators. Ticket packages are being sold on a first-come, first-served basis with regular space reservations reverting to tradition in 2022.

“It’s important to run these races so that we can continue to help out the equine industry and provide some income,” said Dr. William Allison, chairman of the Virginia Gold Cup Association. “So many jockeys, trainers, and industry employees are dependent on these races.”
